Concept

Re:Emergence (Planned, Burning Man 2022) is a 20′ tall open-air tunnel that draws you into its constriction and expansion. Custom sensors will envelop you with light as you move through (or climb over) the piece. Re:Emergence is an invitation to awaken from the dream state, to engage the contraction and expansion of our worlds, to step out of the liminal and into what’s next.

Prototype

We envision bringing a 20′ tall, 60′ long sculpture to playa. To better understand the challenges of this piece, we prototyped a version half this size (Emergence) in October 2021. We love the skeleton so much that we’ve decided to bring it to life with custom sensors that will envelop you with light as you move through the piece.
