Solar Freaking Galaxies
This art project was first created for Burning Man 2014, funded by a Kickstarter campaign + BRAF grant. They create an oasis of surreal, gigantic flowers that invites participants to explore and gather within the illuminated, unfolding petals. The flowers are truly ALIVE and aware of our presence. The energy and movement we give is returned by our surroundings: they open, light up, and make their own display of lights as we move around them. Designed by team of engineers, the concept was inspired by the Japanese art of Origami—unique forms created from a single sheet with folds and geometry. There will be 3 featured at SHSF looming above our glowing art installation boardwalk. As the petals breathe in and out, so we welcome the change of season, in the spirit of blooming in super powerful ways!
