Gather your friends. Hold your breath. Prepare for the communal experience and wonder of our Saturday Night Spectacle. In previous years we’ve burned, balanced, tiptoed on flaming wire, marched, hung from cranes, crouched at the feet of giants, sung and held our breath together in collective astonishment beneath the most incredible feats. This year, we present a thrilling, one-off collaboration with a master of light.
“Everything we are and all that we experience and feel is fundamentally to do with energy and the fact that we are beings of nature and light.” ~ Chris Levine
Chris Levine is a light artist who works across many mediums in pursuit of sensory experience through image and form. Levine’s work considers light not just as a core aspect of art, but of human experience itself.
He and top sound designer Marco Perry are creating a new, completely unique and utterly cosmic installation especially for Wilderness. Everyone present will be involved and unified by what occurs. Gather on Saturday night to experience this transformative spectacular. Make sure you are ready on Saturday night – you will be integral to the moment.
Levine is perhaps best known for producing some of the most iconic images of the twenty-first century, working with some of the most famous women in the world: Kate Moss, Grace Jones, the Dalai Lama, Naomi Campbell and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.
One of his most memorable collaborations – and one that inspires this piece – is the IY_project – an immersive site-specific light and sound installation with EdenLAB, Eden Project’s international creative partner.
The idea relates directly to the movement of the Earth around the Sun and a particular frequency which has been found to resonate with the energy of the body. Inspired by the potential to create transformative experiences using light and sound, Chris Levine’s latest work intends to:
“create a harmonised immersive experience for the audience that is literally transformative. The OM frequency is on the Solfeggio musical scale that is based on sacred geometry and correlates to the energy nodes in the body known as the chakras. Tuning ones awareness into sound on this scale induces a meditative state of awareness and is a fundamentally positive and purifying experience.”
Prepare to be transformed.
