A cute, friendly, 35 feet tall silver robot named BEBOT, which invites Burners to climb into its interior. It is an immensely strong climbing frame made of tubular steel, with squat fat legs that provide a ladder to the inside of the round body and from there up into the head where Burners can sit inside the openings for the eyes, ears and mouth on horizontal circular planes.
A massive 10' tall and 40' wide interactive metal sculpture that calls attention to the connection and contrast between humanity and technology. Its underlying design alludes to two wonders in mathematics and cosmology: (1) Albrecht Dürer's 500-year-old unsolved problem on unfolding convex polyhedra, and (2) the shape of our universe based on recent cosmic microwave background radiation data.
Detroit is often portrayed as blighted, and Islam as a religion to be feared. But a group of North End Detroiters are working with artists and architects from Syria, Indonesia, and Morocco to turn that notion on its head. We will create a series of art and architectural installations using tenets of Islamic design meant to combat social isolation.
In this structure, participants walk beneath a painted canvas and among hanging sculptures that create an underwater experience of the open ocean. The artwork reflects changing ocean conditions: a pure blue ocean filled with schools of big fish transitions to a green, gelatinous soup.
