2024 Art Search for "always another sunrise"

Always Another Sunrise

by: Chelsey Hathman
from: Oakland, CA
year: 2024

Always Another Sunrise is a love letter to BRC and new beginnings. This art piece commemorates the euphoric feelings of self-discovery, gratitude, and freedom of expression that the Playa provides through the form of a deconstructed music box.

The music box is a 16′ cylinder that slowly rotates, creating an enclosed secluded space where people can duck up into; inside they’ll hear the sweet sounds of a custom music comb striking, transforming the entire room into a resonance box. In concert with the melody, this rotating disk will mechanically engage eight zoetropes through a geared system. Each zoetrope will feature an animation, evoking the magic of inspiration and gratitude for this shared experience together.
