VESSEL of LIGHT
Projection Mapping Experience
This year’s Burning Man theme will celebrate the animal world and our place in it—animals real and imagined, mythic and remembered—and explore the curious mental constructs that allow us to believe that imagined animals are real, real animals are imagined, and that somehow, despite all evidence to the contrary, mankind is somehow not part of the animal kingdom.
“When animals behave like humans or when humans behave like animals, don’t be surprised, because in every animal there is a human and in every human there is an animal!” ―Mehmet Murat ildan
We are inviting international digital artists to be a part of this show - by displaying their dream themed film and video art work on the 80 foot tall illuminated Grand Pyramid.
We will be using 3 x 32,000 lumen projectors to precisely video map the 80 foot tall pyramid structure. With this giant canvas, we will curate and present nightly multi-media experiences for the citizens of Black Rock City.
We invite you to be a part of this monumental scale media project at the worlds largest art event!
