Photographer's Note

Like a topographical map brought to life, the ridges and dips in the hill on the southern edge of the Desert Botanical Garden are traced by the lighting in the "Desert Chorale" portion of the “Electric Desert” show/installation. Best viewed from the Garden's Ullman Terrace the Chorale is a 20 minute cinematic diplay with music and imagery inspired by the Sonoran Desert that repeats until closing. You can sit and enjoy a snack on the Terrace while immersing yourself in the experience.

To quote from The Klip Collective's and Desert Botanical Garden's websites: in it “Desert forms, dynamic light and sound unite in a mesmerizing display of motion and color. Cactus and desert become a living canvas in this nighttime experience, taking visitors on an immersive journey through the garden using light and original music. Electric Desert includes seven discrete installations by Klip Collective. Using projection and lighting, Klip transformed cacti, succulents, and rock formations into a living nocturnal canvas, using the Garden and its unique landscape as a backdrop for new and exciting audio and visual experiences. Lighting plays a larger role in this seven-installation experience with hundreds of pixel-mapped LEDs and an eight-foot tall infinity mirror light sculpture.”

The show/installation continues nightly through 12 May 2019. What I found during my visit was that the crowd is overwhelming until about 8:30 PM. After that, until the 11:00 PM closure, it's much easier to choose your position and capture the image you seek.
