Paper Doll Militia performed a site specific piece with Epiphany, a 30 ft. metal sculpture originally part of the Crude Awakening instillation at Burning Man in 2007. This astounding goddess woman is kneeling with hands out stretched and chains for hair. We started the piece on top of Epiphany’s thighs, and slowly made our way to the dangling aerial chain that hung in front of her. We performed 3 times throughout the evening, across from the suspended steam boat in the V.I.P section of this massive event. The party was epic, with tons of imported sand, swimming pools, a carnival midway, live bands, art instillations, and electronic music rooms, and something like 10,000 people, we were thrilled to be a part of this amazing event thrown by Big Art Studios.
