Preparation

The realization of our social sculpture.
August 18, 2017

After our successful test, we are now disassembling the dome again. Furthermore, the tubes and panels arrived today. So we have got everything ready for our journey to Black Rock Desert.

August 17, 2017

Finally, we are test-assembling the dome in the largest DIY industrial art space in the Bay Area in Oakland, California. It is exciting to see our work in full scale and we cannot wait to experience the Burning Man with it.

August 15, 2017

A local CNC company in Hayward, California is cutting the pieces for our structure. We have to drill the holes and sand the surface down to get all parts ready for assembling.

August 14, 2017

Our Engineering Team continues their work here in the United States. Let’s collect the shipment and illuminate the dome.

August 12, 2017

A lot of stuff to do here in the United States. We are visiting hardware stores and car rental companies around the Bay Area to help bringing our dome to the desert.

August 11, 2017

Finally, the first team members have arrived in San Francisco. Our batteries are charged and our memory cards are ready to be filled.

August 08, 2017

The first group of our team is going to leave Germany tomorrow…we are excited!

August 05, 2017

We are ready to ship the materials.

The current mirror work continues. As soon as the Engineering Team has finished their prototype, they will be able to test some programming and how the lighting system is going to interact with the playa.

July 25, 2017

The engineering team continues their work on our lightning prototype.
