Chapel of Chimes - 2019 BurningMan art piece

Post by ShaneTO » Tue Jul 02, 2019 1:30 pm

The Burn is just around the corner and Chapel of Chimes - a new art piece hitting the Playa this year is looking for your support.

Our Chapel of Chimes crew is working hard to bring the Chapel of the Chimes to Black Rock City and we need your support! The Chapel of the Chimes is a sacred space created from other sacred spaces. This installation includes the tablets from the Smithsonian's Renwick Gallery's David Best Temple that was open to the public during their "No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man" exhibit, and parts of Temples from 3 Catharsis on the Mall vigils. These pieces have been publicly installed and touched by so many; they are coming home to where this tradition was ignited!

Bridging the gap between Black Rock City and its adjacent lands felt increasingly important, and, in 2015, the team built and burned a Temple at a public university in Fairfax, VA. Later that same year, they built and burnt a Temple at "Catharsis on the Mall", a Burning Man-inspired event focused on healing and community that is free to the public and inclusive of everyone that is held on the National Mall - across the street from the White House!

The project needs your support to do modifications, reinforcements, transport, adding new sections just for Black Rock City, lights, electricity, equipment rental, and more. We must also build special containers for the tablets from the Smithsonian's exhibit to be burned in. It is with reverence, respect, and love that Chapel of Chimes will be installed at Black Rock City.

The team consists of an ever growing number of artists and builders from across the globe. This crew has worked on numerous projects over the years in Black Rock City and beyond, but the creation of sacred spaces always brings us back. It is a beautiful experience to share; and, as it can facilitate transformation in us, we hope it will transform you.

We are metamorphosing these parts from caterpillar into butterfly in this last flight from DC to Black Rock City. We bring with it hundreds of thousands of prayers and wishes that need to be burned, transformed, and put to rest.
