2013 - Mission Umbrae

2013 proved to be the final year of Burning Man’s regional C.O.R.E. project. In keeping with building an effigy representative of our region, we settled on Mission Santa Clara. Behind the altar, a large wooden plaque displayed icons of world religions as well as other things people worship: science, money, shopping, technology, etc. “Mission Umbrae”, Latin for “shadow”, was inspired by the see-through church of Limburg in Belgium: Gijs Van Vaerenbergh's design reimaagined.
