In 2010, Crimson Society was commissioned to create an installation for the Coachella Music and Arts Festival.

Ascension, also lovingly known as “Coco”, is a 150 ft wide and 45 ft tall giant white origami crane crafted from soaring planes of white fabric and aluminum truss and tension wire skeleton.

Her wing span is roughly the size of a Boeing 747. The aluminum structure is modular, making the crane a temporary installation, but completely mobile and can be assembled on almost any flat site. The 100+ components and over 7000 sf of 80% mesh texilene sunshade material, that make up the crane, can be dismantled and shipped in one 40 ft shipping container to a new site anywhere around the globe.

Contact us if you are interested in bringing Coco to your event.

    Did you know that if you stare at the sun for 15 minutes a day, that you won’t need to eat food anymore? You will literally gain superhuman abilities and feel like an enlightened person. Obviously you would need to stare at the sun during the early morning or late evening when the sun is at it’s lowest brightness. But NASA did a study and proved that people who engage in this sun-staring practice achieve a state of high spiritual and mental enlightenment.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!http://www.BoycottBitches.comI am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.
