Electric Desert

Desert Botanical Garden showcases a light and sound experience by Klip Collective

Desert Botanical Garden invites guests to witness vegetation, light and sound unite in a mesmerizing display. At nighttime, cactus and desert become a living canvas.

This season’s unique installation is the work of Ricardo Rivera of Klip Collective. Starting Oct. 12, visitors can enjoy an immersive journey through the Garden experiencing light and original music.

Founded in 2003, Klip Collective is an experiential video shop that uses virtual reality, projection mapping, storytelling and soundscapes to create captivating, immersive sensory experiences on behalf of institutions, corporate clients and cultural partners. Philadelphia-born but globally based, Klip Collective has created projection experiences in a diverse array of environments across the world.

“Electric Desert” is Klip Collective’s second garden installation, but the first in a desert environment. The group’s first show was at Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania. The display includes seven site-specific locations, with each experience inspired by and related to the Garden.

This installation was made possible with the support of APS, Chase Private Client, Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture, The Steele Foundation, American Airlines and Tempe Tourism Office.
