The Solacii

debuting at Burning Man 2017

The Solacii is 1 of 75 recipients from 15 countries to receive support from Burning Man through the Honorarium Grant program.

Deep in the dusty desert, a solemn figure rises out of the ground

Dressed in a cloak of many memories, it’s glowing faces and hands beckon you forth

Approaching this mysterious being, you are invited to enter the sanctuary of its body

Cross the threshold.

Be soothed by the ambient textures of deep pulse and ancient breath

A soundscape created from the stories others have left behind

Share your story, and your voice becomes

that breath and that pulse

Spend time in solitude or in deep conversation

Meditate. Sing. Cry. Pray.

This is your refuge

The Solacii is wise and ancient, yet sees us with deep Curiosity and Wonder

It invites you to share in this wonder

When you look into its eyes, you see the whole world looking back at you

This connection allows us to build a deeper relationship with ourselves and with each other

Turning this vision into a reality will cost $35,000
