Grow Fourth will stand for Portland in the Circle of Regional Effigies in 2012.
The Portland Burner community is vibrant and active. This year’s CORE project echoes Portland’s diverse character with the placement of four smaller effigies around a tall Tree. This design celebrates both the region’s dynamic groups and and our unity as Burners. The space in between the pieces symbolizes the potential for connections and growth. The Tree’s canopy will be covered in Leaves embellished by local artists and participants. Surrounding its roots, we will suspend 3D wooden pieces from four stem-like metal hangers that appear to be growing up from the Playa.
Grow Fourth’s interplay of metal and wood represents the diversity of Portland’s makers, with a Tree symbolizing the forests of the Pacific Northwest.
The Circle of Regional Effigies (CORE) represents the progress of the Burning Man culture radiating outward from the main fire at our center, out into the larger world. Each effigy is created by a local community from within the Burning Man Regional Network.
