We recently completed 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 afar, you can see the folds of the shells, made of corrugated polypropylene and illuminated with over 100,000 LEDs. The shells open and close, constantly in motion, sometimes protecting the intimate interior of the sphere, sometimes revealing a glimpse of its heart.
FoldHaus brought this extraordinary experience to the Playa in 2018.
