Pink Intruder Recreates Burning Man Installation in Spanish Cloister
After bringing Renaissance to Burning Man in the Nevada desert, the art collective Pink Intruder came home to Spain to reconstruct the installation at the Centre del Carme Cultura Contemporània, a former convent, for another festival, Las Fallas de Valencia.
Aided by scaffolding, volunteers and Pink Intruder members connected cardboard tubes to cardboard posts with MDF joints to build a cube.
LED strips were taped to the tubes.
Once CNC-cut MDF panels were screwed on, cardboard masks were the last element added.
The cube stood 19 feet tall.
LEDs illuminated it at night.
Sheets of gold-leafed paper, varnished to protect it from the elements, wrapped the latticework.
Pink Intruder founder Miguel Arraiz surveyed Renaissance, which featured ceramic mosaic tile on the floor.
