Diver UP is embracing the Age of Aquarius. Metamorphosis is in the air. The mixing of an industrial helmet with the feminine goddess - Man Made in contrast to Mother Earth. This message, which is leading her to take off this controlled helmet by society and mankind, and history, to open us up to a new world of equality and within that, the divine feminine goddess celebrating womenkind and mankind in unison - a beautiful new world that invites/allows/accepts/celebrates everyone for their individuality as part of the NOW
I created the Original image of Diver UP on the magical Isle of Ibiza, in 2005. The connection between Ibiza and Burning Man is a very beautiful and spiritual one. Both with their own cacophony of pirates, merrymakers, hippies, and all other sorts of funny little earthly beings.
I’m happy to share exciting news that, in collaboration with ARCH Collective of Blauvelt, New York , we are bringing Diver UP to Burning Man to proudly erect her on the wonderful Playa in 2019. ARCH Collective is headed by Evan Collier and the two of us have been attending Burning Man for over a decade and have participated in many large art projects over the years. Many of our team members are Burners and festival goers.
With deep appreciation,
Victor Spinelli :)
