I'm proud to announce we will again be doing an art installation at Wakarusa Music and Arts Festival!
Our crew had an amazing time out there last year meeting all of you, and we can't wait to get back on the Mountain again this year.
We will be installing 3 large Geodesic Domes this year. These installations are interactive, sustainable, and visually-pleasing. The domes will be used as a hammock lounge, a shade-structure, and as a shelter in case of rain. We will also have an aerial hoopist on our crew!
The geodesic dome is considered to be a very efficient means of enclosing space. A sphere has the highest volume to surface area ratio of any three-dimensional shape. This means that material costs can be minimized without sacrificing interior space. A half-sphere allows for a maximum amount of floor space for a given surface area. The rounded shape allows air to circulate naturally around the dome.
Geodesic domes are extremely stable structures. This is partly due to the fact the triangles, which are naturally stable polygons, are used throughout. This is one of the reasons triangles are so popular in homes, buildings, and bridges. In a geodesic dome, these triangles eliminate the need to include load-bearing walls without sacrificing stability. In addition, its curved surface offers a natural layer of protection from high winds and other environmental stresses. Geodesic domes have been used in such places as Antarctica where wind speeds can reach 200 miles per hour.
Be seeing you guys on the Mountain!
