Temple of Brad Pitt (TOBRIT) (Burning Man 2019)

The Temple of Brad Pitt channels the famous Hollywood actor. It captures Brad Pitt’s aura, extracts the essence of his being through data gathering and redisplays it as a performative sculpture at Burning Man 2019 enabling participants who enter a special apparatus to briefly experience what it is to be him. read more

NOTES:

Sarcophagus (Bedouin Tech 2016)

3D model: File:GeodesicTempleBedouinTechDubai2016.skp
Dimensions: 1100cm wide x 680cm high x 1070cm deep

COMPONENTS (2 OH contingency included):
(8) octahedra
(96) 400cm long 2x4 studs (sourced in Dubai)
(96) Simas connectors (made in Dubai)
(36) Lowroad connectors (made in Dubai)
(888) 0.25" x 2.5" bolt/washer/nut combo
(96) 380cm white LED strips with power supply and controller

NOTES:
- Sarcophagus is the first GeoTem to use 400cm long wooden studs (previous GeoTems used 8ft. long studs). This means that each OH will require ladders to be assembled. We will need two 300cm ladders.
- Final assembly will require work done at 680cm high so we might need a small cherrypicker for construction and break-down

GeoTemAlpha is the first Geodesic Temple to be built. It is a proof of concept made of seven octahedra that form approximately half of GeoTem04. It uses the Lowroad Single Stud Cord design. 2x4 studs are assembled into octahedra using the Simas Connector version 1. It is painted fluorescent pink. Produced by Preston and Jay.
Height: 15' Length: 27' Width: 30'. 12 studs x 7 octahedra = 84 2x4x8' studs.
