Disorient is a camp at Burning Man
Disorient has been a camp at Burning Man since 2001. 2014 was the year of the Gold Bug at Disorient. Our camp's superficy was more than 120,000 sq. ft. at 2:15 & Esplanade with 328 campers. In front, the Arch was crowned by Helios (Leo's new rendering of the DEX Crown) and the new 2014 Disorient Sign by Viktor and the Soviet Block. Disorient Posters by The Two Jasons wrapped the inside of the Arch which led into the Dome in which Francois K and friends shared musical insights on Disorient's 6:1 sound system.
Disorient is an art 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 (DMX sequencing, MAX, Java, C, etc.). 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.
Every yearsince 2011 we organize Country Club upstate New York, a 4 day outdoor event aligned with the Burning Man ethos.
In 2009 we organized our first fundraisers outside the US in Brazil and Argentina; in 2014, Dubai.
More than 3,600 DOers (DisOrienters) have camped with Disorient at Burning Man since 2001. They're about 40% US East Coast, mostly NYC and Philadelphia, 30% West Coast/Central US and 30% outside the US, including members in the UK, Russia, Israel, Canada, Hong Kong, Sweden, France, Argentina, Japan, Lithuania, Brazil, Australia, Dubai and Germany. As of July 2011, Disorient has 1300 members and 50,000 posts on our online forum, The Puddle; even more in social networks and in deep cover.
Too Much Is Rarely Enough.
