Dual Apparitions is Buster’s response to the Soleri Bridge. The lightweight vessels are made from UV protected greenhouse shade cloth and provide a dramatic structural contrast with the bridge. The structures also offers a ghostlike experience to viewers both from a distance and within the tent-like vessels themselves.
