  • Summary

    An interactive art piece that is designed to be pushed around the playa at night by people. The piece will be a 2m tall and wide, giant inflatable Moon that is illuminated from the inside, inviting you to be as wild at heart as the wolves that howl at it.

    Full description of the concept

    The moon is a feminine symbol, universally representing the rhythm of time as it embodies the cycle. The phases of the moon symbolise immortality and eternity, enlightenment or the dark side of Nature herself. The moon also holds a mystical place in the history of human culture, so it's no wonder that many myths — from werewolves to induced lunacy have built up regarding its supposed effects on us. "It must be a full moon," is a phrase heard whenever crazy things happen.

    The definition of a moon child is someone born under the astrological sign of Cancer. Coincidently, our beautiful and wild Kiez Burn falls into this astrological phase, making us all children of this wild moon.

    Stay Wild Moon Child is an interactive, mobile art piece and is designed to be pushed around the playa at night by people. With the full moon roaming around the playa for the entirety of our burn, it invites you to lose yourself in its radiance, follow your own path, intuition and be as wild at heart as the wolves at that howl at it. The moon will be a 2m diameter giant inflatable ball that is illuminated from the inside. It will visit all the kieze by night and everyone will have a chance to howl at it, kiss in front of it, hold it, hug it, lift it and feel its energy closer than ever before.

    I bring a full moon to the playa and open the door for a lot of lunacy, midnight mayhem, wild dreams and wild hearts.

    @dopedaydreamer's Tumblr page describes Stay Wild, Moon Child beautifully.
    "You were born to dance to the beat of your own heart. To roam without cages, with the innocence of a child and the free spirit of untamed horses. I hope you laugh without stopping, live with abandon, and love like that’s all there is. Stay wild, moon child"

    About the group/Artist

    I'm no fancy artist. I'm just a soul that has a dream to dance with the moon.

    How do you plan to Strike the Project?

    It just needs to be deflated. No Trace.

    How can other burners co-create with you?

    I will visit all the kieze by night. I will need volunteers to help visit the kieze or people to volunteer to take it. Ill also need a little help inflating and deflating it. But thats it
