The Galactivation Station is a super sensory experience of light, sound, dance and play. It's a 12' pyramid portal to another dimension. As you step inside, the installation creates extraterrestrial music and sounds, directly corresponding to the motion of your body. You will likely find yourself moved to dance as you experience a total shift from the paradigm your where dance is created by the music, because in the Galactivation Station, the music is created by your dance! The music activates a full color LED array covering the entire installation surface, creating a fully immersive torrent of color and light all of which pulse and throb in resonance with the sounds produced.

We aim to raise the bare minimum funds to prepare and bring the Galactivation Station to the Burning Man Festival. We need to buy dustproof sensors which can withstand the treacherous dust storms which frequent the festival as well as the blistering heat. We also need to buy a generator which will also be able to withstand the heat and dust as well as playaproof all of the sensitive components of the installation. Again, this is the absolute minimum cost just to make the project seaworthy for the Playa. There are many other upgrades we would like to make but don’t have the funds for, so any donations beyond the target will go immediately to making the Galactivation Station the best that it can be!

So far I have dropped over $3000 of my own money and countless hours into this art piece and now I need your help to make the final step to the place this installation belongs most... Home
