Through the integration of art, science, air, and electricity the Airship Victoria is a floating three-dimensional art installation.
Born out of the recent airship renaissance, and a desire to create an interactive performance art installation, the Airship Victoria blends modern and historical technology to provide a unique spin on airship design and architecture.
Through the integration of art, science, air, and electricity the operators of the Airship Victoria will create a floating three-dimensional art installation showcased at Burning Man 2011.
In 2010 we showcased the X2 prototype and received raving reviews. This year's prototype, the X3, will be our largest build yet.
