Check out Geodesic! at Lightning in a Bottle!
My goal is to create transformational experiences. Through immersive interactive environments, I aim to empower the participant by shifting their consciousness, presenting an opportunity for personal reflection, revelation, and transformation.
Geodesic! invites you to interact, reflect, and transform while being bathed by light, sound and even smell. It's sheer skin comes to life with fractal geometry while LEDs glow with a spectrum of color. Ultrasonic sensors on the inside of the dome will allow you to interact with and shape the experience.
Art is multidimensional, it is about every experience and interaction that happens because of it, and the connections and communities that are made around it. By challenging our boundaries, combining ideas, and encouraging interactions, a new world is created around us.
With your help, Geodesic! will be co-creating at Burning Man in August.
Together, we Co-Create our Reality.
What is it?
Geodesic! is a 16ft 3V self-built metal conduit geodesic dome covered with a translucent sheer fabric so it can be experienced form both inside and out.
4ft Giza proportion pyramids house 3 2200 lumen projectors that envelop Geodesic! with fractal geometry and immersive animations.
Addressable RGB LEDs at each vertex of the dome are controlled by an Arduino which interfaces with a MacBook Pro. LEDs, Projections, and mist, can be controlled via midi by Ableton Live, Resolume Avenue, and Ultrasonic Sensors.
Two speakers provide ambient soundscapes and effects which further propel the participant into metaphysical bliss.

Lucidity: The Totems' Return
At its festival debut, Geodesic! provided a participatory container to interact, reflect, and transform into a state of lucidity.
Situated in the I AM HEALING Sanctuary, Geodesic! created a sacred space which transformed itself as well as it's occupants.
By the end of the night, as people returned from the dance floor, the dome was packed. Lucinda Loves lead a group sound healing incorporating her crystal bowls and tuning forks with the projections and soundscapes. We activated and rejuvenated with light, sound, cacao, incense, essential oils, and much needed massage after a days worth of ecstatic dancing, transforming Geodesic! into a multisensory healing experience!
Geodesic! needs you!
So far Geodesic! has been entirely self-funded. This includes the 16ft 3V dome, 3 projectors, sheer cover, LEDs, speaker system, foam tiles, electronics, and materials.
Geodesic! needs your help to get through the final stages.
The Giza pyramid enclosures are still being built and need to be fitted with access panels and adequate ventilation.
Transporting and providing electricity for Geodesic! is the largest forth coming expense.
Purchasing a generator is much more economical than renting one for multiple weeks sporadically throughout the years. With it's own generator, Geodesic! and it's future projects will be entirely energy sufficient.
By donating towards a generator, it will be much more affordable for Geodesic! to come to a music and arts festival near you!
Your donations will help to create an experience that will be cherished by many.
In order to travel to Burning man, Geodesic! needs at least $2400
$800 to purchase a used Honda EU2000i generator
$125 for generator gasoline
$500 for trailer rental
$500 for workshop rental (Pyramids)
$250 for remaining materials (Plywood, 2x2s, misc. construction)
The Extra Mile
Geodesic! could use some maintenance. The hand made sheer cover has become worn and stained.
$600 would allow me to have a new more durable and form fitting cover professionally made to last for many more seasons and installations!
$100 would allow me to order new LEDs.
The current LEDs were custom ordered but were spray painted black after the fact, consequently the black paint has been rubbing off in the heat and staining the white cover.
$500 Geodesic! will be able to go to Symbiosis!
If the goal is not met, funds will be used to fulfill perks and rent equipment rather than purchase it. When the goal is exceeded, Geodesic! will be able to travel to even more festivals and gatherings!
