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!
