Just over an hour away from Palm Springs, there is more magic to be found in the desert. Visit the Noah Purifoy Foundation set in Joshua Tree for it houses some creative outdoor artwork. Noah Purifoy’s “Outdoor Desert Art Museum” is 7.5 acres of open land displaying his assemblage sculptures, all created on-site between 1989 and 2004. The sculptures of found materials depict many political and civil issues making him one of the most profound, hard-working, and visual artists of his time. Also, the staff at the foundation is very friendly and knowledgable!
“I hope my work provides inspiration for a person to do today what they couldn’t do yesterday, no matter what it is. That’s art. That’s the fundamental creative process and it’s something that changes people and empowers them.”
Giant Rock in Landers is one of those extraterrestrial places to visit. Special electromagnetic forces and a vortex have drawn scientists, UFO specialists, and even regular folks like me to this remote place.
The soundbath at Integratron created by George Van Tassel is close to the cosmic Giant Rock. Integratron is a fusion of two of my favorite things: art and science. The historical structure is a resonant tabernacle and energy machine designed to be an electrostatic generator for the purpose of rejuvenation and time travel. The lay lines underground intersect here, and the forces are magnified through the unique symmetrical dome-shaped chamber walls. Savasana is my absolute favorite yoga pose, and sound baths help me relax and quiet the mind, but this soundbath is truly a must to experience!
