About

In pagan traditions in Lithuania and many other Indo-European countries, there exists a popular myth of stealing and conquering the Sun, the Blukis - a huge tree stump, symbolic of the beings and energies below the earth, the underworld spirits. To free the Sun, the Blukis was dragged around a town, beat and later burned.  When practiced on Christmas Eve, this Pagan ritual  symbolically allowed the light of the world to rise again and all bad things collected  by the Blukis while dragging it through the community were burned.  Blukis-draggers not only welcomed the new light, they burn their fears, emotional baggage because they believed that everything that is old must be reborn. Every year the townspeople waited in anticipation for this burning ritual as if it was their 'New Year on the Playa'. 

Blukis - annually, the burning stump camp travels around the world, collecting all bad things and then it is burned, riding the community of all evil things...

This year we want to create a cozy and comfortable spaces inside of Blukis roots for people to be able rest and enjoy themselves there, also install a lighting system for all Blukis structure to glow and burn at the night time.

We want to make a special use for Blukis root construction that is made from pipes by installing water sprayers in to the pipes and adjusting water pump. Creating some sort of mist machine from one of the roots, so during the hot day Blukis visitors will be able to go inside the root and refresh themselves with massive water spray over their bodies.
