Concept

Re:Emergence (Planned, Burning Man 2022)¬†invites burners to awaken from the dream state of the global pandemic. The sculpture’s shape explores the contraction and then expansion of our worlds, both real and imagined. The piece asks the question: As we re:emerge from the liminal, how might we turn our dreams into reality?

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.¬†
