We are currently building our biggest, most audacious art piece yet.
RadiaLumia is a geodesic sphere, five-stories tall, and covered with a breathing skin of forty-two origami shells and radiant spikes. Its shape nods to radiolaria, a tiny protozoa with intricate mineral skeletons that covered the desert thousands of years ago, when it was once the sea floor.
From the outside, you can see the folds of the shells, made of corrugated polypropylene and illuminated with over 100,000 LEDs. Inside the sphere, a platform offers a place for people to retreat and look out to the surrounding landscape. The shells open and close in response to visitors’ presence, constantly in motion, sometimes protecting the intimate interior of the sphere, sometimes revealing a glimpse of its heart.
FoldHaus will bring this extraordinary experience to the Playa in 2018. We need your help to be able to complete the piece. Please consider supporting our Kickstarter campaign (coming soon), or making a tax-deductible donation to become part of our art.
You can support this project by going to Kickstarter and contributing. Every little bit helps.

We need your help. This project won't be possible unless we raise enough money for the build.
