Dozens of artists are gearing up to bring their installations to Burning Man this fall. Many of them raise the funds to build them via Kickstarter and IndieGoGo campaigns. I find it super fun to get a preview and see whats emerging from the imaginations of some our most creative folks. This month I’ll be featuring their fundraisers so we can all get a look at the offerings as well as help them carry them out.
The Temple of Promise….their fundraiser has reached its deadline, but didn’t make it’s goal, and Indie GoGo is allowing them to continue funraising.
Such a graceful structure!
A contemplative space of reflection, solace, celebration, bereavement, communion, and release.
The Temple of Promise begins with an immense skyward-reaching spire, clad entirely in shimmering copper. As you move deeper into the gently curving structure you pass beneath a progression of delicate archways which gradually descend to a decidedly human scale. When you pass through the final archway you emerge into an encircled grove of sculpted trees.
