VB17 – Dark Side of the Moon
8 May 2010
Our most formal work since VB04, a cast of 30 ascends 3.5 km over the Booville skydiving sim and creates a human lattice. Unlike many skydiving configurations, this one exists fully in 3-dimensional space as our bodies merge to create the most sensorily luscious of the five Platonic solids, the dodecahedron. After an hour of crystalline perfection we drop the entire 30-person configuration. We experience 3+ km of freefall, and then (most of) our parachutes open and we land on the Booville runway.
