The Tree of Life
At Black Rock City, 2019
About the Tree Of Life
Rising 110 feet off the cool tan playa of Black Rock City is the reincarnation of an ancient symbol, the rainbow bridge of manifestation connecting the earth and the stars. A place to awaken yourself and your creative expression. A place to remember visions of the future, hear the subtleties of thought, smell the presence of nature, touch the vibration of connection, and taste the elixir of your own existence. This piece creates an interactive exchange and collaboration between earth and space, internal and external, nature and technology, in which both the internal journey and the external expression are brought together.
Here everyone is invited to come play in the ceremony of life.

Ambisonic sound system bathes participants in a field of soundscapes, with the vibrations of nature, the 7 chakras, light and sound.
Temple of the Stars, a place for you to feel the interactive exchange between earth and space, nature and technology.
We designed this piece with the best materials in mind for sustainability and the best technological tools for innovation.
The building process involves computer modeling that allowed us to design for extreme environments while saving time, money and minimizing risk.
This piece shows that we can use art, innovation and technology to transform our world into a place of alignment with nature, of different cultures, and personal transformation.
