Compressor is DISORIENT’s annual ignition of the collective rocket that drives our community to the playa. It’s a chance to premiere the latest art and performances that will define us in the Black Rock Desert.
This year’s theme will focus on reclaiming the future of metropolis through high-tech interactive art and parables of sustainability in the heart of our metropolis. How do the denizens of metropolis reinvent their environment in a far away land? How does word for the future from the past square with the actual future? What then do we learn about our own future metropolis?
Costume ideas include future-retro to future-techno, cyber-tribal to nouveau-formal, Nikola Tesla to Fritz Lang and anything else that captures the essence of Re-envisioning Metropolis.
