Overview

Art Seen Alliance headed to Nevada in 2019 for annual arts festival Burning Man. For the event Art Seen brought an original art car, the Rhinomog.

The Rhinomog was created out of welded steel and built around a 1961 Unimog vehicle to resemble a rhinoceros beetle.

Goals

Our goal for this project was to create an aesthetically pleasing vehicle that could be used to transport festival goers across the playa. To achieve this goal the crew at ASA created a fabric cover for the rhinomog to keep the cab area shaded in the intense desert heat as well as numerous cushions for event goers to rest upon while in transit.
