New Years Eve, 2009
New Years Eve was a special event for us. Having the ability to take weeks for set up, and knowing the 2000 sq. ft. venue could remain in exhibition for weeks after, allowed us to most deeply transform the venue to our liking.
A charitable event for Burners Without Borders, we again shared the venue with Zirk Ubu's amazing talent along with many other guest artists, DJs and performers. In following weeks our works are shown during many events, concerts, themed brunches and dinners.

We performed an epic feat by setting up an 800 sq. foot venue in a matter 6 hours, hosted thousands during a four hour long show (apologies to everyone who attended for the very long lines!), then broke it all down again in only three hours. An exhausting yet extremely rewarding experience.
