Pub Theology Asheville Message Board › the Theophony project
As organizers of the Open Table, we're writing to tell you about this very unique project... especially since it aligns with the essence and intent of the Open Table.
The name of it is "Theophony," which means the experience of hearing God, and it is an interactive meditation art installation coming to Burning Man at the end of August. "The concept is simple - construct a giant optical theremin inside a canvas and wood Yurt. Cover the walls of the yurt with 22 4'x8' murals depicting successes and failures in the pursuit of spirituality. Visitors enter the yurt, reflect on paintings, and try to play the giant theremin along with music piped into the tent, realizing that the pursuit of spirituality is hard" (from Theremin World).
The Kickstarter fundraising campaign to raise $8,000 ends Saturday, July 21 @ 11:59pm ET. So check out the site, "share" it with everyone you know, "pledge" your tax-deductible support as a "backer" of the project, and be part of this gentle revolution! http://kck.st/MBK0gS
Whether or not they meet their goal, the Theophony team (including our very own Hope) is committed to going to the festival, so please consider helping to bring their project to life!
Finally, make sure to check out Phil Wyman's article in Christianity Today's July/August issue (coming out this week) as well as this article on the Sojourner's website. Both capture more about the team's art installations at the festival (past & present).
