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 2010)
With more art installations and constructions being done at Disorient camp on the Playa, tool organization and wrangling has become a demanding task. In 2010, BriteLite did a good job as Disorient Shop Master on the Playa. The Disorient Containers and their content were kept together more than ever before. But we still 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. We need an appropriately-sized, well-organized space to keep and maintain the Disorient tools which will allow us to build Tighter and Brighter installations.
The Disorient Workshop is such a space. Set in a container this Workshop would have a custom side opening with a counter as an interface between inside and outside, storage managed by the Shop Master and a workspace where Doers could get small/precise tasks done while being protected from the elements. The Disorient Workshop would provide a clear central place to pick-up and return tools, a protected place for tool, appliances and generators storage, a space to build and assemble components for art projects, and last but not least 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.
