Disorient owns several 20 ft. ISO containers in which the Disorient Treasure is kept.
Proposal for Disorient Workshop in a container
by The Eye (discussed with Tejawe, BriteLite, Devyn, Robo and others at BM 2011)
With all the art installations and constructions being done at Disorient on the Playa tool organization and wrangling has become an important task. In 2010, BriteLite did a great job as Disorient Shop Master on the Playa. The Disorient Containers and their content were more kept together than ever before. But we need to organize our tools better and take better care of them. At BM 2010, for instance, it rained several times while most of our electric tools were outside, unprotected. The Disorient Workshop is a possible solution. This special container would have a custom side opening with counter and storage/workspace. This woudl provide a clear central place to pick-up and return tools, a protected place for the tools, generators, etc., a space to build and assemble components for art projects, no more unpacking/repacking. We could transform one of our existing containers or possibly acquire a new one. See images below.
We might want to consider storing the Disorient Workshop in NYC when it is not on the Playa so we can use its content during the rest of the year. In that case we would be looking for a Nimby or Treasure Island-type situation in/near NYC instead of classic studio space.
