An event horizon is the theoretical threshold around an inescapable gravitational pull, created by many different cosmic elements. For our project Event Horizon, this gravity is the PS1 Warm Up Party as a locus of culture, diversity, art and a heightened awareness of the environment.

To encourage fluidity and connectivity between these two zones, a secondary “stage” is created as a centerpoint surrounded by seating, water, and mist. Above, a torquing figure clad in an aluminum textile reflects light through while creating a significant cooling effect.
