Opal Essence Project
Once upon a time, we built a beautiful and amazing sculpture.
Then we burned it.
Efforts are underway to rebuild OpalEssence, with the idea that it will be a permanent installation. Get involved! You can help build, assemble, and organize. You can help with the lighting, and with the programming.
Idaho has a wonderful community of artists. We have created some remarkable things in the past, and look forward to future projects.
In 2013, The Idaho CORE team created a second sculpture, called Marvin, and displayed (and burned) it at Burning Man. The sculpture was meant to represent the angularity of a crystals, the cave-like structure of arched walls, and the twisted complexity of a vortex.
Members hope to rebuild a modified version of this structure as a permanent art installation in Boise. Marvin the Vortexagon was an intriguing puzzle of complex twists and simple squares. It may live again...
