Harlan Emil Gruber received a degree in Environmental Design from Parsons School of Design in 1985. He has produced a wide variety of art and design projects, culminating in the large-scale interactive Portal installations created for Burning Man since 2004. Through the use of sacred geometry, colors and sound vibrations, they are intended to facilitate an evolution of consciousness. These installations have now traveled to many other events in the US and around the world.”
Evolutionary Interfaces: Sacred Geometry and Earth Energies of the Portals” is an in depth presentation of the interactive installations that have been exhibited at Burning Man and other festivals since 2004 by Harlan Emil Gruber. They utilize Okaysacred geometry, color and sound for participants to experience an evolution of consciousness. It will be shown how the golden ratio and the 5 platonic solids are incorporated in their designs, plus the next level of geometries they manifest. It will be explained how the Portal’s designs are influenced by aspects of the Earth’s interactive energy body and the human chakra system. Some short documentary videos will be shown as well as a demonstration and meditation with the Quasar Wave Transducer sound sculpture contained within them that vibrates with low frequency feedback.
