Electric Zoo invites you to explore and interact with art installations both inside the festival grounds and along the shoreline of Randall’s Island.
Garden of EZ
The Garden of EZ is a space to get lost in a reverie, and find yourself in a moment of contemplation. Featuring the work of artist Gizem Bacaz, and also home to Braindrop by Kate Raudenbush, the garden is a study of nature, blooming with art and eye candy. Be sure to pay a visit during the day and the night, as the garden transforms itself after sunset.
Gizem Bacaz creator of GEOMATRIX, a peephole into the realm of a geometrical matrix. An installation that combines the forces between the natural environments of the venue, the structures that are implemented into the landscape act as a mirror to the underlying fabric of the inner web. Hence her work is a study of nature. Her work was featured at this years Electric Zoo Festival.

PRESS:(METROMIX-NYC)"Over 85,000 electronic music fans, and people who like to wear their underwear outdoors gathered on Randall's Island for three days of the Electric Zoo. Headliners of the dance fest included Ibiza megastars Tiesto, David Guetta and Armin van Buuren, with featured sets from Moby, Rusko, Sebastian and hot newcomer Skrillex, who popped up from behind the towering DJ booth and was greeted with an ear-splitting roar from the few thousand people gathered at the Hilltop Arena. There was a surprise interlude from DJ Snoopadelic (a.k.a. Snoop Dogg), while odd-men-out Chromeo brought actual instruments to Sunday's mainstage, playing a live set with Dave 1 telling the crowd he's always wanted to play "Don't Turn the Lights On" at sunset...and getting his wish.
PRESS:(NY TIMES) Clean or dirty? Uplifting or brutal? Those were choices dance-music fans could make on Saturday, the second day of the weekend-long Electric Zoo 2011 on Randalls Island. They could go for the polished tones, warm chords and step-by-step buildups of trance and house, the overlapping styles that have long dominated dance clubs worldwide and that gave Electric Zoo its headliners: Tiesto on Friday, David Guetta on Saturday and Armin van Buuren on Sunday. The unsubtle four-on-the-floor beat of trance has been a longtime staple of European pop hits, and in recent years American acts like Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga and Rihanna have also embraced it.
