Cocoonap is a combination of two words: Cocoon and Nap. Installation-transformer, which smoothly changes its appearance and telling a small parable. This is a visualization of a metaphorical dream about the changing and cyclical nature of life, about what is its basis. Birth, flourishing, development, dissolution in eternity.
The 3x4 meter installation will be made of wood, vividly decorated with LED-stripes for a spectacular show during the night, and the surface of the cocoon itself will be covered with stencils that will project metaphorical illustrations onto the surface of the desert.
Held during the day, a nearly three-meter-high cocoon will attract citizens of Black Rock City with its mystery and encourage them to think through stories whose fragments are carved on its surface. And during the night, smoothly revealing and shimmering with multi-colored lights, Cocoonap will tell its own story with the warm and ambient music on the background, like a light summer nap, engaging the audience in the process of inner transformation and making them participants of the performance.
But that's not all. Everyone will be able to change the melody during the presentation with a special controller, introducing new details both in the sound and in the perception of the story itself.
In order to open the installation with the first sun rays on August 21, the day the festival starts, we are working on creating it all year.
Our team is located on both sides of the ocean - in Ukraine and the United States. These are artists, engineers, musicians, and extraordinary creative people. In mid-August, we will move on the desert to the Burning Man site, where we will build Cocoonap and then share its history with the Black Rock Citizens residents.
The installation of Cocoonap is a dream of a small group of people to say what is really important for all of us, to reveal the beauty inside a person and harmony with the world through art and give this feeling to everyone. If this idea is close to you, you can become part of this project and help turn it into reality in the most amazing place on Earth!
