Over 40,000 people came together at Big Summit Prairie, Oregon, to view the total solar eclipse in August 2017 as part of the Symbiosis Festival. I worked as part of the construction team for the Solar Eclipse Temple for a month in the wilderness. In addition to being part of the construction crew, I designed the fixtures used to light the terraces.
