Carousel Candeo: Burning Man Art 2016

August 24, 2016

 

Every year Burning Man inspires people to make art. At first it was hundreds of people because back then there were only hundreds of people attending the event.

Read about 1992 when only 600 people attended Burning Man: The Shadow Grows

But now thousands of people attend Burning Man which means there are thousands of art projects scattered across the face of the desert, beckoning us to go yonder like a mirage except a mirage it is not: there are wild and crazy sights to be seen day and night on the open playa as well as within the streets of Black Rock City.

Get a sense of “The Places You’ll Go” at Burning Man and what this “Home” is like.

Last year, Ventura County CA artist Deniz Nichole made her first trek to the Black Rock Desert to attend Burning Man.

Soon the pyropainter was inspired to return with her own work of art, a work of art that would inspire as she has been inspired, a work of art that would be collaborative and colorful, playful and pyropainted, a painting technique that she has honed over time through sometimes dangerous experiments where she exposes pigments to flame and captures the resultant molten images on glass.

Deniz came up with what she calls “Carousel Candeo” and has spent the past year making her idea come to life: from filing the paperwork to get it accepted to raising the funds to get it fabricated. See her website and donate via PayPal here.

According to Deniz, “Carousel Candeo is community driven, collaboratively created, highly interactive art installation” that invites participants to spin and play together.

The carousel has a 12′ in diameter rotating carpeted surface that carries participants around. The surface also features triangular pyropainted glass panels and  “triangular frames featuring rows of gyroscoping glass disks divide the riding area into fourths.” Participants will have the opportunity to pyropaint with Deniz who will install the community created art.

The moving, illuminated disks “will spin projecting a glittering kaleidoscope of lights.” Handle bars push the merry go round creating the Carousel Candeo “a psychedelic manifesto, a glittering kaleidoscopic merry go round that in motion fuses the artist, installation, and community,” writes Deniz.

And now she’s hours away from getting it loaded up and set up in the Black Rock Desert for this year’s Burning Man Festival, “Da Vinci’s Workshop.”
