Collaboration with Robin Hely and Peter Burke

Let Them Eat Cake, New Years Day, 2014



A participatory experience in which audience members are invited into an enclosed space where they have an unexpected, intimate, one-on-one experience with a stranger. Participants are led into an enclosed tent filled with high-density white fog that creates the illusion of whiteout conditions where vision is limited to less than 40cm. They will be wearing wireless headphones, which transmit an audio guide track from the White Cloud Oracle, instructing them on how to orient themselves within the cloud environment. Once they have been strategically positioned within the cloud space and briefed on experiential etiquette, a strangerʼs face will emerge from the whiteness and make intense eye contact with them. The White Cloud Oracle will then transmit a meaningful, cleansing, interconnected and transformative experience. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
