We invite you to see desert, light and sound unite in a mesmerizing display like never before. Cactus and desert become a living canvas in this nighttime experience, taking visitors on an immersive journey through the Garden using light and original music. This is Klip Collective’s second garden installation; the first was at Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania. Electric Desert includes seven site-specific locations, with each experience inspired by and related to the Garden.

About Klip Collective
Founded in 2003, Klip Collective is an experiential video shop that uses virtual reality, projection mapping, storytelling and soundscapes to create captivating, immersive sensory experiences on behalf of institutions, corporate clients and cultural partners. Philadelphia-born but globally based, Klip Collective has created projection experiences in a diverse array of environments across the world.

*Please be aware that Electric Desert includes light and video projections, which may be problematic for individuals with light and sensory sensitivity, photosensitive epilepsy or other visual conditions.

*Garden plant scientists can assure that the lights used in Electric Desert will not damage the plants in any foreseeable way. Specifically, the lights used in the exhibit will not heat the plant tissues above normal nighttime temperatures, do not use light sources that are harmful to plant tissues (such as ultraviolet radiation), and are not intense enough to interrupt circadian rhythms of plant metabolic processes.
*Garden staff have consulted with animal experts at partner affiliations, which have confirmed that there are no biological concerns about the exhibition in regards to the well-being of the animals.
