-TREENET WILLY'S PORTFOLIO-
Since picking up this skilled artform in 2008, I've created over 100 permanent net hangouts all over the world. Below are some of the bigger, cooler projects that represent what we are all about.
July of 2019, I constructed 6 custom nets for the 5 airbnb units overlooking the beautiful rice terraces of Selut Bali. Camaya is truly one of a kind and one of instagram's top places to visit for 2020.
Jagermeister's Ie Cold Gig 2017
Queenstown, New Zealand
August of 2017 I helped create the world's first fully suspended theatre. Spearheaded by Brian Mosbaugh and Scotty Rogers of the Moab Monkeys, this massive rectangular spacenet was rigged up in the peaks above Queenstown, New Zealand where U.K. EDM band Modestep played their newest single, "Higher."
UV Sky Tapestries
Constructed with the SpaceAge Slacklines crew, these highline spacenets are all UV reactive and resemble mandala tapestries when set up. These will be used across canyons and high elevations hangouts all over the world.
Rhythms of Rimba Festival
September of 2018, some of my work was sent over to Borneo with my buddies Brian Mosbaugh and Scotty Rogers. Rhythms of Rimba is an environmental awareness event, encouraging and promoting a sustainable way of life.
Sonic Bloom TreeNets
Hummingbird Ranch, Colorado
Sonic Bloom was one of the first festivals to let us create a semi-permament installation on the ranch grounds. This TreeNet will last around 4-5 years in this location and continues to be a centerpiece for all events at the ranch including other fests, weddings, parties, and gatherings. Since 2018, we've created a TreeNet on the grounds every year due to their high popularity.
The Neuro Net
The Dome was our first introduction to making something completely aesthetic and not meant for hammock use. By collaborating with String Theory Art Productions and Ed Apples, we were able to create a structure that resembles brain synapses. by adding lasers and UV string, we had a beautiful centerpiece and moving light that added new dimensions to the multicolored wormholes.
