A secret upstate New York location - year 10 of our self reliant weekend of camping, music, interactive art, and creative technology.
Join Disorient for year 10 of our annual journey of deep chilling, off-the-grid futurist relaxation. Country Club is a lake and lush green woodland oasis where blissful self-reliance meets massive multiplayer techno and technology participation. Explore a constantly shifting blank canvas of music, art, and performance. Country Club is a fundraiser organized by an all volunteer team. All profits are used for Disorient art creations at Burning Man.
Disorient Country Club 2020 Theme: ASTRODYNAMICA
ASTRODYNAMICA: branch of astronomy that studies the motion of natural and artificial bodies in space. For this theme we are exploring retrofuturist intermodulation, planispheres, objects of orbit, imagined mars colonization via 1960s mainframes, real and artificial moons, satellite dish mania, LED and incandescent light, MASERS/LASERS, extra planetary survivalist built structures, programmer heroics, accelerationism, swarm technology, cross discipline dreaming.

Disorient is a volunteer-run art collective.
– Disorient has very few rules, but two require declaration and elaboration:
1. Respect personal boundaries.
2. Take responsibility for your own experience.
The interplay of these two rules forms a social contract that makes our events safe places to explore your own boundaries while encouraging respect for each other. Talk to those around you about anything that makes you uncomfortable.
