My name is Dadara and I am an artist from Amsterdam in the Netherlands working on the Solipmission project: We are going to travel ten thousand kilometres to lock ourselves up inside a big black box for the entire week of the festival. Inside the box there’s a cylinder and we will depict what is out there on the inside walls without ever seeing it with our own eyes, solely based on what visitors tell us. There is also a big technological part involved with VR.
Chris Kiwi Hankins who, amongst other Playa projects, designed and built the 2011 Temple is our main builder. We had another main builder from Amsterdam, but due to unforeseen serious personal circumstances which happened a few days ago he won’t be able to make it to the States. So now we are looking for someone else who can take his role and help with the pre-build in Reno.
The box will be made out of wood. Some technical info: The box is 24’x24’x20 high and will be constructed in 16 x 8′ high x12′ long panels and 8 x 4′ high x12′ long panels. Framing is 2″x4″and clad in 5/8th plywood.
So far. Please let me know if you are interested to help us make this happen!
