Aquatica – a 36 inch by 48 inch art poster. It was made as part of the Carnival Of Space & Time installation for Eridu Society at Burning Man in 2015. The event’s theme that year was Carnival Of Mirrors. We wanted to play on that, but ultimately decided to use it for our own art theme. Eridu Society often works elements of steampunk and time travel into its installations. The premise was that members of the camp had traveled to future Burning Man events. Then we brought back the art theme posters to delight and inspire. Click here to check out art theme posters current and past.
The Burning Man event takes place on an ancient lake bed, which today is a seasonal lake during the winter and spring. It took months to get the model and shallow lake to render in a fairly realistic way. At the end, I wasn’t happy with the results, Subsequently I was inspired to take a more whimsical approach and instead went with tub toys. I was art director on the project and creator of this particular piece.
