The Boston Cod Piece is going to be a 19ft long wooden cod brought to Burning Man as an art project.
The body of the cod will be climbable with wood scales for people to write and draw on. Inside the fish will be shade and seating to provide an oasis from the heat and dust during the day. Using LEDs, the body of the fish will be outlined while the ground is bathed in watery tones. To represent how fertility leads to abundance and potentially followed by exploitation and collapse, at night a skeleton outline of the fish will occasionally shine representing the collapsed cod stocks in the northern Atlantic.
