The Other Project

Monday, July 9, 2007


Dimensions: 20 ft x 20 ft
Total Area: 400 Sq. Ft.
Peak Height: 17 Ft

Designed by the Canadian company Tentnology, this model has been extensively used in refugee camps in Afghanistan and other relief sites around the world to provide temporary emergency shelter for refugees. The tent has been engineered for extreme weather conditions.

The tent will be located on a tall hill in Fire Valley. Even though the tent site itself is particularly undeveloped and raw and can easily reference landscapes in other semi arid corners of the world, the view from the project site will bring you back to the suburban utopia and its planned subdivisions.

Visiting the Tent

  • No electricity will be available at any time
  • No smoking will be allowed at any time for safety reasons
  • No cooking will be allowed at any time for safety reasons
  • All furnishings will be available to artists and audience
  • Parking will be available at the project site
  • The tent will be open to the public during the following hours:
    8:00am-11:00am and 4:00pm-8:00pm
    (All performances, workshops, readings, conversations and panels will take place during those hours.)
  • From 11:00am to 4:00pm there will be very limited programming at the tent due to high temperatures at the project site.
  • There will be no restrooms available at the tent site. Restrooms for guest artists and visitors will be available at CalArts facilities.
