Black Rock City, Nevada | August 2019

Burning Man is an event focused on community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance held annually in BlackRock Desert, Nevada. A very early iteration of Bubbles was featured as part of the Vessel of Light project led by Light Harvest at Playa Alchemist 80' tall Grand Pyramid.

bubbles is an ongoing series of soft, touchable things. These works explore they dynamics of soft body physics, the 4th wall, and a never ending fascination with perceived sensations — the subtleties of movement and the sensations we feel when interacting with digital technologies that evoke the familiar.

Using body tracking technology, and machine learning participants are transposed into a parallel digital space in real-time. Given a second pair of hands, they are able to play and interact with the bubbles, “feeling” them in their natural state and alternate universe, while participants bodies remain anchored in this realm.
