The Wailing Cock Launcher
The Wailing Cock Launcher is a interactive game where participants use a custom built 12' tall slingshot to launch rubber chickens 350' in the air. Other participants down range attempt to catch the chickens in special receptacles before they hit the ground. This project attracted huge crowds at Burning Man 2016 and the Animal Kingdom in 2017 and combines a interactive installation, participant driven game and performance art piece involving the launchers custodians.
