This year we will be hosting the Symbiotic Pieces Silent Auction to thank and give back to the Paiute Tribe for providing their incredible sacred land for the Symbiosis Pyramid Eclipse Gathering. One third of the proceeds from each live painting will be donated to the Paiute community.
The auction will include almost all of the Symbiotic Pieces produced at Pyramid Eclipse. You will spot these paintings being produced alongside the main stages and in the Symbiotic Pieces Painting Dome. An exhibit of live mural productions will also be on site featuring a variety of collectives and renowned urban painters.
Crawling out of the Paleozoic depths of Pyramid Lake, T.R.I.L.O.B.I.T.E. emerges. Come warm yourself inside the belly of this symbiotic creature and activate your mind as you feast your eyes on a collaborative painting that will pull you back with its ever evolving story. Relax and release around the mix of art as the moulting process within opens your lobes to a dreamscape of further worlds.
T.R.I.L.O.B.I.T.E. will feature Alex Grey and artists of The Further Collective with structure design and execution by Warren Binder, Nils Volkmar Hammerbeck and crew.
As light passing through a prism transforms, redefine what you are as you wander through the realms of the unknown. Attune your experience of life through a collection of visions depicting the anomaly of being human.
As humans, we first perceive the strange to be anomalous, but in time we evolve, and so does our understanding of these once unexplainable phenomena. Eventually we accept certain things as truth that once seemed impossible.
For as long as we've been here to witness it, the sun rises each morning and shines bright in the sky until it sets at the end of each day.
Then, there was the first anomaly.
Amidst the flood of interpretation and speculation, a tribe has emerged, using art to evoke transformation. A new culture has been born, and today is gathered to celebrate the infinite possibilities inherent in the unknown.
You are that tribe.
Eclipse your existence and experience Anomaly
