OK where do I begin? It’s Van Halen, Stufish designed in your face rock and roll memorabilia. Probably the largest on ebay, ever! Forget about the man cave. You’re going to need a rather large yard for this, It is the Reactor from the 2004 tour including the mesh screen for front or rear projection. Includes several high quality casters on multiple heavy duty carts numbered with the location for each piece. This is the real deal and a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a genuine Stufish designed work of art. Auction states local pickup, and while that is preferred I will work with buyer to ship anywhere. Now it’s up to you, ebay community, to decide what to do with a giant planet shaped projection screen. If you are thinking of putting this in the back yard, please, just ask the wife first. You could paint it to look like a giant sunflower? Great promo piece for one of those desert roadside attractions or heck, maybe it will just wind up at Burning Man. Any way you look at it, this thing will attract attn.
A little about the architect…
Trained at architectural school in the late ’60s, Mark Fisher’s interest in building temporary structures and inflatables caught the attention of Roger Waters and led to his first rock’n’roll commission for Pink Floyd’s Animals tour of 1977 at a time when rock touring was in its infancy and set design non-existent. Fisher got his break and never looked back.
Under the guise of Fisher Park, he and engineer Jonathan Park collaborated on groundbreaking set designs for a roll-call of major live productions throughout the ’80s and early ’90s including Pink Floyd’s The Wall (1980-81), Tina Turner’s Private Dancer (1985), George Michael’s Faith (1988), Jean Michel Jarre’s Concerts In China (1981), Rendez-Vous Houston (1986) and Destination Docklands (1988), U2’s ZooTV (1992-93) and the Rolling Stones’ Steel Wheels/Urban Jungle and Voodoo Lounge tours of 1989-90 and 1994-95 respectively.
The company split into two in 1994, with Fisher setting up his Mark Fisher Studio — more readily known these days as Stufish — to move forward with the most iconic touring sets of the mid-to-late ’90s: Pink Floyd’s The Division Bell, U2’s PopMart and the Stones’ Bridges To Babylon. His studio is now responsible for upwards of 20 projects annually, encompassing a wide range of events from ship launches to parades, awards shows to theatrical installations, and from rock’n’roll to the celebrated Cirque du Soleil.

I like the screen, but there’s no way I’d pay that much for it.
