reOnion has received a grant from the Burning Man art project.

We are proud to receive support from the Burning Art committee to realize the installation of our project. Unfortunately we still have a hole on our budget, to facilitate the transfer materials and ourselves from Budapest to the desert of Nevada :)

The artistic installation is a garlic-shape structure reacting the visitor’s resonances with light and projection. The structure is divided into six cabins.

The cabins are covered with UTOPLAST of recycled plastic overlay. The output is defined by the entering visitor and generated by her\his resonances. (breath, heart beat, body temperature)

ReOnion installation is an initiation ritual to a special physical and virtual space with its own rules. It is a connecting sphere of inside and outside, me and them, you and I.

We hope to help our visitors and spectators to a discovery of inner and outer mental space and of communicative resonance.

The base of the installation is a 20 foot (6 meter) diameter circle. In the center located is a 20 feet/6 meter high steel pillar, which supports the structure and technical equipment. The cabins are built on a 6.5 foot (2 meter) high wooden stage around the pillar. The main room is located around the steel pillar, the visitors have to climb here to enter the cabins.
