The Life Cube returns to Burning Man 2012 for citizens to realize their hope & dreams in a spectacular display of art and burning fire.

THE LIFE CUBE V2

INSPIRATION AND ARTISTIC MISSION
The Life Cube is an exciting interactive art installation on the playa at Burning Man. In 2011, we inspired participants to explore and share their hopes, goals and dreams with others, memorializing them by writing down personal messages and depositing them inside The Cube. This year once again, The Life Cube will be burned at the week's end in a cathartic display consigning the wishes to the embers and the atmosphere.

NEW FOR 2012
The Life Cube V2 will have bolder graphics, an interactive platform for greater participation, and a new series of inspirational quotations to stimulate interest and insight. This year, we’re adding Graffiti Walls that will allow people to publicly post and share their thoughts, wishes, and dreams.

The Life Cube V2 will be eight times larger than in 2011, at sixteen feet square, with ladders enabling BRC citizens to climb up, over and around the installation. And this year, we’re lucky to have an enthusiastic team of over forty supporters volunteering their time and effort to bring the Life Cube V2 to Black Rock City!

  • Many have asked what’s up with this art project at Burning Man, and why I’m so passionate? I conceived The Life Cube as an aesthetic interpretation of my beliefs that if you write down your goals, wishes and milestones, you will have a better chance of achieving them. I started setting goals to paper early in life, and been fortunate to accomplish many of the things I set out to do. Over the years I have had the honor to work and mentor many wonderful and successful individuals. There is a consistent theme to my counsel, and every year I email about 10 people to remind them to write down their goals and ambitions. This Burning Man installation is just the beginning. If you know me, you know that I think big, and will devote my energy, enthusiasm, and passion to taking it to the next level. Stay tuned.

    One more thing, “Write down what you want to do in your life and it will happen!”
