burning man

The laboratory’s inaugural project for Burning Man 2017 will deploy developed information platforms and patterns as part of a physical platform, the structure itself. It will be an opportunity to feed real time data from Burning Man participants into visuals implanted within and without this structure, creating a fluid mechanism in the desert. The temporary nature of the festival provides the opportunity for the lab to test radical ideas. The venue blends the [primitive/ futuristic] manmade habitations of Black Rock City with the scalelessness of its natural context. The festival becomes a world of manmade supernatural sublime, an open ended space of infinite potential. The Extraction Laboratory’s proposal will push the boundaries of this unique opportunity to inspire a new type of habitation by synthesizing extracted sytems /geometries/ structures to create a new pattern of occupation.
