The 2015 Burning Man art theme, Carnival of Mirrors, includes a midway in which regional communities will “help create an interactive space that will house a panoply of strange and enchanting wonders.”

Two different San Diego based projects have been accepted for the midway!

A vortex where time and space are merged combines oversized, interactive childhood games from the 80’s, with a 20’s aesthetic of San Diego’s midway legacy, all housed within a mind bending trick of the eye, in which you begin as yourself and end as a giant! Find secret doors to emerge into another dimension which is ruled by a handmade pipe organ for your playing delight until reality calls you once again back to the Midway!!  Find us on Facebook.

The Soul Exchange is a carnival game booth extraordinaire, with a twist. In order to play, you must allow your soul to be weighed and participate in a soul exchange. This Midway project represents a collaboration of artists, planners, and performers who are creating a stage set for the game of imagination. Highly participatory and highly interactive, Dr. Hyas Balze Boardwalk Soul Exchange is an epic journey into building community and art through play!
