The “Burning Man” is infamous for its annual festival gathering; where an entire community explore various forms of artistic self-expression, transcending gender, creed so everybody connects at the same place spiritually, escaping from the outside world around them.
A ‘Decompression party’ or “Decomp” is a local reunion for Burning Man participants to help ease themselves back into everyday society after the "big event".
Burning Man Moscow partnered with Center MARS to deliver a large-scale audio-visual installation encompassing floor projected multimedia displays, synchronised multi-channel video and music spun by DJ’s from an enormous stage providing a multi-sensory experience.
In a separate space, MARS arranged its own rave compilation in an operating car wash. Drawing inspiration from surreal DIY installations that are built in the desert by Burning Man participants, MARS converted the carwash into an abstract object of living art. Within this unusual location, vivid video imagery was needed to work succinctly, projecting a synchronised show.
Created by Daniel Sukhovsky, the immersive AV blend unfolds into a time continuum where the car wash becomes part of the show, designed to completely cleanse the minds of the Decompression visitors - at least for one night.
