Astral Carpet Lounge
by Disorient Minigolf Cell
Disorient created a minigolf hole that was installed as part of the Figment "City of Dreams" MiniGolf course. The course was installed on the island from June 27, 2008 to October 12, 2008, and was playable every weekend throughout the summer.
Our hole, a combined minigolf hole and lounge space with airport-themed signage, formed the entry point into the "City of Dreams," as a place where one could escape the summer heat, lounge, socialize, and snooze.
Installation & Deinstallation
Installation of the base hole was completed by FIGMENT opening day on June 27, 2008, with completion of the Delta shade the next day. Ed & Ky performed the base install, with help from a few others on the Delta. It was a hit!
Deinstallation was performed by Archer & Jester Jaimi, who stored the hole on Governor's Island.
The submitted proposal can be found here

- corrugated surface serving as part of the golf green as well as a lounge space (zero-g's)
