Singularity 2018

Singularity is a large scale interactive art piece that will make its debut at the All Of Us Event at the end of May and also at Burning Man later this year!  For the last 2 years my design team and I have continued working on Singularity. Thanks to Singularity being invited to exhibit at All Of Us, we are able to begin construction on the multiple layers that make up the complete piece. We are excited about the opportunity to bring Singularity to All Of Us at the end of May and ultimately, the entire piece, to Burning Man at the end of August.  

Singularity is an interactive art piece that combines physics and psychology. It explores how traumatic events can create mental cages. Using symbolism of the birdcage and house, this piece creates a space for participants to explore and interact. Much like the infamous Russian dolls, the entirety of this piece will include multiple layers of various sized bird cages and houses. Each layer represents a memory of a memory. The details tell a story that changes as the piece breaks down in size. How far down the rabbit hole can we go?

Singularity will be built in 2 phases. Phase 1 is a smaller/internal version of houses and cages currently under construction to make its debut at the All Of Us Event. It will measure approximately 16’ tall and will also be used at events and exhibits taking place outside of Burning Man later this year and into 2019.

Phase 2 is the large 40’ birdcage with the 2 story house trapped inside that will be built for Burning Man. These two phases of Singularity will ultimately come together as one cohesive piece at Burning Man.

Thanks to your generous donations we will be able to successfully build and bring Singularity to the All Of Us Event. The funds from the $7500 target goal will be used for materials and transportation to and from the event. Funding over the $7500 target goal will go towards building the rest of Singularity for Burning Man in August. Your donations will go towards both major phases of this project! The more you give, the more you help the overall success of Singularity.

Thank you for taking the time to check out our campaign profile and making a donation! We hope you enjoyed learning about Singularity and we look forward to bringing our creation to life.
