Tree of Transmutation
by Kevin Christman
Talent, OR

From a distance, you see a tree with strange translucent fruit suspended from stems radiating out from the center. The tree and its branches spring from the playa and carry the suspended figures out from the center trunk. Upon closer approach, the figures appear as female forms, twice life size, in various fetal positions, suspended in space. In the center is a wooden pyramid pieced intricately together like the stonework of a Mayan wall. The top is capped in a copper plate with the tip intersecting a globe of half size skeletons with a small female figure suspended in the center. The large figures are suspended from hooks to freely rotate and be removed for physical interaction in a variety of creative ways to make them silent voyeurs of Burning Man. At nightfall the figures return to be illuminated as dazzling suspended gems.
