Parastra Intergalactic Taxi Service transports people to new mindscapes with amazing glowing parasols and other fantastic light-sculptures
It began as a long midnight walk during a summer solstice festival -- Dylan Toymaker with an illuminated parasol. It was such a sucessful prop - the indirect light, the ufo styling, and the shadow dancing it enabled - inspirational. The light-dance that started there continues on.
Parastra, dedicated to light-sculpture and situational art, is attempting to learn the ultimate festival experince, and to that end has provided food services (organic, raw delights at Nexus north of vancouver), recycling education (green team, shambhala 2005), deco and art (koots roots, zion the harvest, zion soulstice, motion notion), artcraft vending (shambhala, edmonton folk fest, winnipeg folk fest, om festival, north country fair, edmonton jazz festival, toronto downtown jazz festival, etc), and straight up participation (burning man, calgary folk fest, etc)
