Erich Remash and Chris Thomas shared their Helix Spire, a temporary 25 foot sculpture constructed from 196 2x4s and weighing 2000 lbs.  The tower was designed to be easy to climb, bringing those up to a small space that can function as a small gathering place or a small observation platform.  Rising into the sky, the tower’s geometry creates an interesting visual against the sky as it spirals upward.   The Helix was constructed two times this year; once at LARC near Conway Washington for Critical Massive, and then in the heart of Nevada’s Black Rock Desert for Burning Man.
