Wind of Change - Art Installation at Burning Man 2022

The art project we’re building is meant to remind us all that no matter what, it’s in our hands to create the kind of future we want to live in. We still have much more to raise and cannot build this meaningful installation without your generous support! 

This year on August 20th, our team will arrive at Black Rock City to start implementing our Installation- "Wind Of Change"

Prefabrication of the project has already started with purchasing materials and cutting windmill heads out of Iridescent PVC. 

 Your financial support will help us to get the project done on time with decent quality. 

Crowdfunding Goal: 

We seek to raise  $5,000 (of the total $25,000 needed) through crowdfunding.  Help us to create a unique experience!

"Wind of Change" represents the flow of life and how life continues no matter what. Our art space consists of 400 unique windmills that allow visitors to contemplate and meditate on the invisible earth force.

Meaning: 

Our original art idea had an emphasis on liberation from all the burdens the past few years had put on us.  We still believe that art has the power to open hearts, to provide a place amidst a windy desert where we can express our feelings or maybe just contemplate the power of movement that we visualize through spinning windmills. 

We still believe that art has the power to open hearts, to provide a place amidst a windy desert where we can express our feelings or maybe just contemplate the power that we visualize through spinning windmills. Depending on the wind speed and its direction, the "act of change" or windmill spinning will appear. Some will stop, and some will spin like crazy... Some of them might get even broken, creating a metaphor for people surrounding us in daily life. However, resistant to the harsh conditions of the desert - we believe that our mills, like all of us, after these difficult years - will definitely stand and celebrate life, no matter what. 

Who we are: 

We’re the Wind People - a team of architects and creative people with very different life stories and backgrounds but there is something uniting us all – our Eastern European/ Slavic roots. Although we’ve lived in the USA for a long time, the connection to our native lands is something we will always have.  We think that we all should speak up loudly.  We should speak up via that we chose, considering the “new normal future” with all Injustice and inequality that we all are experiencing now. We chose light and beautiful construction which brings all the positive energy through the Wind - to change the world and make it a bit better. 

Details: 

There are 400 windmills of different sizes involved in the project. 

Every mill will have a solar battery to light it up during Black Rock City nights and to create a cosmic experience in the nighttime as well as during days, making our installation sustainable. 

We cannot do this without you! 

Please consider different ways to help our project:

- Make a generous donation, every dollar is important for us!

The art project we’re building is meant to remind us all that no matter what, it’s in our hands to create the kind of future we want to live in.
