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 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 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. Of the 7 art cars moored at Disorient this year, particularly noticeable was the DEX 2014 iteration performed by Elixir, B-Shyne and the Disorient Philadelphia Cell.
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. 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 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.
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 The Puddle and other social networks to stay connected.
Too Much Is Rarely Enough.
