Pachinko is a dazzling light installation integrated into a permanent structure. As permanent as a wall built into the side of a hill. The hills were created by the Missoula floods and then pushed around for houses, roads and sidewalks… and finally and most recently pushed back enough to build a meager retaining wall anointed with over 100 glass blocks that are back lit with powerful, programmable lights!

I’m so excited to share this community project with you another year. Electronics in Oregon in the rain takes patience and endurance…

“…..Which is just another way of blaming, and perhaps the best way, because there is solace and a certain stoical peace in blaming everything on the rain, and then blaming something as uncontrollable as the rain on something as indifferent as the Arm of the Lord” ― Ken Kesey, Sometimes a Great Notion
