Fractal Nation @ Burning Man 2012 Compete!

A sincere and humble thanks to everyone involved in creating Fractal Nation camp in Black Rock City at this years Burning Man Festival.  Space Shaping crew had the pleasure of working with some of communities finest.  On either side of the dance floor stood an art dome.  Welcoming burners was the first dome organized by Tribe 13 Gallery  featuring art by Android Jones and many fine others.  In the middle as you flowed onto the dance floor you found the GeoPod by SpaceShaping.net. The spherical geodesic enclosure acted as a sealed and temperature controlled front of house video and light control booth.  Intersecting the Geopod was a shade cover created by Guild Works.  At the front of the dance floor was a bamboo facade by Carey Thompson that we had the pleasure of co-creating by adding the bordered stretch fabric panels into.   Covering the stages where 2 SaddleSpan tents that we installed custom video screens inside of.   Next as you passed the dance floor you wound your way into the MAPS dome featuring the art work of Alex Grey  and a 2 story high circular second level.    All and all it was a vast experience for the public to interact with and was a made possible by the collaboration of so many smart workers.

I must be frank here.  Never before have I worked with such a crew/family of loving and sincere people.   My experience and the experience of my setup/strike crew was nothing short of magical.  Thank you Fractal Nation for setting a standard of chill yet firm coordination as we all held it down this year.

After what could perhaps have been my best burn to date (out of 13) I feel like I have certainly deepened my connection with this extended family of wonderful fractilian creatures.  My crew and I look forward to building incredible collaborations in the future and are tremendously grateful for the experience.
