Koru-dor @ Portland Winter Light Festival
We created six glowing unfurling fern light sculptures ranging from 4 ft to 7 ft, called “Koru” after the Maori word for the unfurling fern shape that symbolizes evolution, growth and balance. Our ferns have welded steel frames, internal programmable color-chase LEDs, and colorful, waterproof skins made from industrial plastic wrap, tissue paper, spar urethane and other materials to create a vibrant and playful stained glass aesthetic.

Solo Bueno Portals @ Envision Festival
We designed and fabricated two entrance portals with integrated backlit signage for the “Solo Bueno” areas on the fly, inspired by the tropical flowers found on site, using bamboo, plywood, fabric, LED strips and a bit of paint. We also helped build a large geometric bamboo portal for the “La Sombra” area.

pyramidz of the aul @ Desert daze festival
We designed and fabricated a 15 ft wooden pyramid decorated with surreal landscape panels and a floating, glowing capstone, and two 5 ft meditation pyramids. The landscape panels were made of layered wood with mirror and plexiglass details to give depth and shadow to the scenes. The interior’s gradient-colored fabric, wooden eyes looking down from the ceiling, painted benches, foam mat flooring, and ambient soundscape created a calm, comfortable chill-out space for festival attendees.
Built in collaboration with Open the Portal, with support from Mason Rothschild, and soundscape by Sam Rogue
