My graduate thesis project was an architectural scale immersive environment deployed at the Burning Man Festival. The dome project was erected on the inhospitable Black Rock Desert playa, and featured 360˚ visuals, surround sound audio, and vibroacoustic foam beds. Musicians and performers from a multitude of sacred world music traditions were invited to use the installation as a ceremonial concert space, as well as to conduct workshops on yoga, meditation and music.
The project was realized through collaboration with Adil Kassam of Elevate Films (Los Angeles), the Red Lightning collective, and Dr. Diane Gromala, my graduate supervisor. The installation was incredibly well received on the playa, and was the subject of my Masters dissertation entitled: Sacred Media – The Immersive Aesthetics of Technosacred Space.
