Burning Man 2011- 2013

The first Life Cube, an eight-foot square, was planned in 2010 and erected in 2011. While small in size and scope, the concept resonated with hundreds of participants, and artist Scott Cohen was motivated to build another, better version of the Life Cube the following year. In 2012, its dimensions expanded to sixteen feet, enhanced by writable surfaces for greater interactivity and a more creative and graphic exterior. The third Cube came together in 2013 and reached exponentially greater proportions. It featured a more complex and compelling multi-level architectural design with a pillared facade, more surfaces for writing and drawing, a tapestry wall, colored strobes and spotlights, and giant painted murals. That year, the final burn ceremony attracted a circle of thousands of Burners and “Cube-ists,” reverent and reveling in the moment as the project went up in flames.
