THE APOCALYPSE IS BREATHTAKING

A japanese bonsai-inspired tree with delicate and intricate filigreed metal detailing appears much like an heirloom. One can govern the nature of fire by speaking to the tree – she speaks back with fire. The tree itself is hyper reflective with the brass under fire, glowing. The stainless steel trunk, with discreet climb places and candle coves is stand-alone a sculptural and craft master-detail oriented piece which appears ancient  – an antique from an ancient time.

Candles, a hundred a day, are distributed both at the piece and in magical
ways, to find their way to be added to the tree.
This piece is beautiful and sad, an unflinching truth being spoken in poetry.

This piece has been built literally overnight, but due to escalating metal and transportation costs, we are hoping for a little help for the last mile to get it to Playa.

While The Apocalypse is an honoraria piece and has received a grant from Burning Man, unfortunately, the shipping industry has completely gone out of whack post covid and the war in Ukraine, and even more unfortunately, we are shipping from India to the US, halfway across the world.

Our total costs for this piece are 68000$, of which 25000$ has been grant funding and 30000$ has been self funded. We have run out, and are looking to raise the deficit of 13000$.

With your support we can bring The Apocalypse to be Breathtaking home and will forever be grateful for your support. Thank You!
