Harlan Emil Gruber merges his interests in art, design, and science into a unique body of work. After studying physics at Emory University and electrical engineering at Georgia Tech, he received a degree in Environmental Design from Parsons School of Design in 1985. He has produced a wide variety of art and design projects, culminating in the large-scale interactive Portal installations created for Burning Man since 2004. These installations have now traveled to many other events in the US and around the world.
Harlan is now focusing on the sacred re-inhabitation of Gaia based on his lifelong studies of Buckminster Fuller, Paolo Soleri and other visionary architects and thinkers: “Conceiving Future Environments”.
