Disorient is a camp at Burning Man

Disorient has been a camp at Burning Man since 2001. 2017 is the year of the D at Disorient. A 180 ft. x 150 ft. letter "D" made of Square Shades will protect our tenters from the elements. Chand Baori, designed by Disorient India, is composed of 4 inward-facing oversized series of steps. It is the central component of our frontage and the place where Disorient interacts with Burning Man. It includes the Disorient Sign, the Square in which latest flavors of Disorient music, sound art and interactive light installations will be served and the H2O Bar where sparkling water and ice-cold Minty Towels will be available. The Bedouin Tech Lounge organized by Disorient Dubai hosts camp feasts and shisha sunsets. Gon Kirin, our flagship art car by Disorient Hong Kong will flank Chand Baori when it is not roaming the playa. The Duke's will be hard to find. At the bow of camp, beyond Esplanade, Geodesic Temple reaches towards the Man.

In addition to our residents we invite DJs to play on our sound system. During the week of Burning Man, we set-up a live music stage and invite bands to perform.

Disorient is a 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. 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.

Our contribution to the vernacular includes Pornj and GlamTech.

Disorient events

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 camping events last several days and are aligned with the Burning Man ethos.
