South Bay Art Collective

The South Bay Art Collective is a group of Burning Man enthusiasts in the San Jose/Silicon Valley area who are dedicated to a year-round experience of building art for the Burning Man event. We’re evolving into a group that also creates and supports civic art in our hometowns. See our prior years’ build projects, and what is going to be brought (and burned) on the playa this year!

OUR 2018 PROJECT – WormWatch

WormWatch, an observation tower in the deep desert, is SBAC’s 2018 playa project. Originally conceived as a lookout at the trash fence, we added an element of surprise … an attacking worm!

This is intended to be a kinetic sculpture with interactive elements, and will be burned following a pyrotechnic show the likes of which few have ever seen!
