2018 Art Search for "the intersection"

Robot Gothic

by: Chelsi Linderman
from: lehi, UT
year: 2018

Modeled after the famous American Gothic painting, this robot effigy will spark recognition for playa travelers, and prompt consideration of the intersections of art and science. Mounted to the base, will be robotic renditions of the two classic painting figures, a man and woman. They will share a central leg, and between them, of course, they hold a robotic-inspired pitchfork.

The Intersection

by: Invisible Pink Unicorn
from: Moscow
year: 2018

This art installation is a real-size intersection with traffic lights, lanterns, road signs, and a bus stop with ads (you can put on yours!), postbox (send us a letter!) and DJ lineup/BM events plans (have a look while you wait for your artcar to arrive).

This intersection is much more than a mundane street a person knows from their everyday life. Upon closer inspection, the intersection seems to have appeared from a parallel universe. The universe where Burning Man expanded beyond the trash fence, found a way into the urban realm, and modified it.

For most of us, the world of Burning Man and the everyday world are parallel universes, and The Intersection represents our dream of a place where these realities meet and exist simultaneously.
