Twilight Anima Rising

Dreamed 2005 by Mardi Storm

The dream was simple: a white unicorn rearing up, alone in a wide open desert.

I was inspired by the image, and proposed it as a sculpture at Burning Man. It was rejected. What immediately emerged next was this image, of a unicorn rising up out of the desert floor, larger than life, made of the mud itself, in response to the rejection from the event… she wanted to emerge anyways, and so I brought her to life.

I feel she was very much part of the collective unconsciousness ready to emerge… as what soon followed was our culture ready to embrace the archetype of unicorn once more. She rose up out of the earth itself, with hundreds of tiny reflective mirrors on its horn – as if to say – “is this what you are looking for? What is the magic in this horn? You are.” For its only us who can solve the world’s problems, turn our poisoned waters clean again, and cure the illness we bring to our land. And the time is now.
