We are thrilled to announce Unfolding Humanity will be returning to Black Rock City in 2023 as an honoraria project. Originally exhibited in 2018, the piece is undergoing a full makeover. The interactive sculpture, a steel dodecahedron covered in over 17,000 LEDs, highlights the tension between technology and humanity. One of the pentagonal walls of the sculpture unfolds under human power – inviting visitors to experience infinity reflections in the mirrored interior. The piece alludes to both Albrecht Dürer’s 500-year-old unsolved math problem on unfolding polyhedra and a possible shape of the universe.
Donations are applied to...
Your generosity helps our San Diego Art Builds crew to refurbish and transport Unfolding Humanity to Burning Man. While the skeleton of the piece will be the same, we are rebuilding much of the structure to be lighter, easier to interact with, and even more fun.
We are almost there!
This work has been generously supported in part by a grant from Burning Man Project. We’ve been awarded an honoria grant that covers nearly half of our $25,000 budget! Your donations will help us get the rest of the way there.
Why are donations necessary?
We are completely volunteer based, and 100% of donations go into the art. Supporters like you are the only way we're able to share our work with the world.
