BYTE is a fully immersive art experience featuring two furry and lovable robots named "Chip" and "Terra, the very first robots freed from slavery.

 

Chip and Terra invite you to celebrate their liberation by climbing, dancing, snuggling and playing in their fluffy bellies  or hanging wisteria garden!

 

Check out their Tour dates to find out where they'll be next and get lost in their adventurous whimsy.

We're also super excited to announce we're building our first art car "Petabyte"  Please help us get there for all the hugs and sweet perks on indiegogo.

THE ARTISTS

JAson BLANDA
Founder + lead + gift giver

Raised in the garden state, Jay started his art career as a 2D/3D character animator in video games, film and tv. His very first sunrise trip to deep playa, in 2015, was a magical revelation of extraordinary art that inspired him to his very core. While animation kept him in touch with his child like imagination, Burning Man showed him artist and audience.  It was then he knew that purging his playful creativity in Black Rock City was not only possible but inevitable.

anDREW LAZORCHAK
founder + dreamer

Born in Massachusetts, raised in NJ and now living in Napa Valley, Drew started out his career as a budding architect & branding designer in New York City and Amsterdam.  He has since launched his own wine accessories/ barware company, which enabled him to be on the west coast and revive his roots in alternative communities, installation art, and dance music.  His affinity for festival culture, music and art has fueled his passion and imagination for this poignant project.
