ELECTRIC FOREST FESTIVAL 2017 : ROTHBURY MICHIGAN, USA
I was invited to collaborate with Vitamodus on the design and fabrication of the new Tripolee Stage for Electric Forest. The brief was Future Present to create these relic like monolithic heads.
I lead the fabrication of the stage heads that flanked the stage.
in 2017 they where replaced with an updated version. The brief was to create something that was easier to re-use and storage. I used this opportunity to innovate a new way of creating inflatable stage work. The benefits of this was ease of set-up, easy to export, easy to transport, easy to break down, and easy to store.
The process was an extremely steep learning curve which produced some exciting results.
