Disorient is a camp at Burning Man
Disorient has been a camp at Burning Man since 2001. 2016 was the year of the Croissant at Disorient (4:00 & Esplanade). In front, the Teatro di Sorient was our interactive center crowned by the Disorient Sign. Arches of the Teatro lead into the Dome in which a new cuvée of Disorient sound was served. The Bedouin Tech Lounge organized by the Disorient Dubai Cell hosted camp feasts and shisha sunsets. The Duke's was hard to find. In front of camp, Geodesic Temple "Tetrax" pointed towards the Man.
Disorient is a collective
Disorient is a sound, visual and performance art collective. We create art projects and art installations with hardware including wood, scaffolding, palette rack, containers, recycled materials, your body, geodesic domes, inflatable structures, video, repurposed objects, black lights and vehicles. We develop software for our installations. Our guiding principles are outlined in the Disorient Model and in the Political Economy of Disorient. Disorient is an open creative platform powered by love.
When we are not on the Playa, we organize events and happenings to raise funds for our art projects on and off playa and support Burning Man. 100% of profit is reinvested in Disorient.
Every year we organize Country Club upstate New York and Bedouin Tech in the desert of Dubai. Both outdoor camping events last several days and are aligned with the Burning Man ethos.
In 2009 we organized our first fundraisers outside the US in Brazil and Argentina; in 2014, Dubai; in 2016, Hong Kong.
Thousands of DOers (DisOrienters) have camped with Disorient at Burning Man since 2001. They're about 40% US East Coast, mostly NYC and Philadelphia, 20% West Coast/Central US and 40% outside the US, including members in the UK, Russia, Israel, Canada, Hong Kong, Sweden, France, Argentina, Japan, Lithuania, Brazil, Australia, Dubai and Germany. We use social networks to stay connected.
Too Much Is Rarely Enough.
