During a visit to LA last week I had the honor of touring Gregg Fleishman’s art studio, only to discover that Gregg and The Connection Crew (a collective between Syn, Gregg and Lightning) have been appointed to build The Temple at this years Burning Man, a prominent installation only few artists are chosen to create.
Gregg Fleishman is an architect and sculptor most noted for his accomplishments of the iconic SCULPT chairs. He works primarily with plywood to design and build innovative puzzle-like pieces that assemble into structurally-sound environments.
What I found most impressive in Gregg’s work was the overall effectiveness of the final product. Everything ships flat and assembles with no additional hardware, joinery, or glue, resulting in stunning display of sacred geometry.
This year Gregg and The Connection Crew are working around the clock to design, build, and fundraise for The Temple at Burning Man – Temple of Whollyness.
