Harlan Emil Gruber

Harlan Emil Gruber, inspired by the work of Buckminster Fuller and Paolo Soleri, received a degree in Environmental Design from Parsons School of Design in 1985. He produces a wide variety of art and design projects, culminating in the large-scale interactive Portal installations featured at Burning Man since 2004. Through the use of sacred geometry, colors and sound vibrations, the Portals are intended to facilitate an evolution of consciousness. These installations have traveled to many other events in the US and around the world. He is now focused on “Conceiving Future Environments” that explores the sacred re-inhabitation of Gaia by building with the earth and all life in a conscious sustainable way.

    60 min | Altar of Spirit

    Discover how three-dimensional sacred geometry relates to the evolution of the Earth’s energy body, human consciousness and the nature of the universe.
    It will be explained how the Portal installations use these geometries to create an interactive space to facilitate an evolution of consciousness and ultimately to inspire people to create and live in ecologically sustainable ways.
    Culminating with visionary future city designs developed in harmony with nature utilizing the design process “TerrAquaForming” to create a world of beauty where earth and water intermingle in regenerative ecosystems for human habitation.
    This workshop seeks to ignite this vision in the participants to create synergetic action and collaboration to create these environments.
