Hybycozo is a collaboration of two artists: environmental scientist Yelena Filipchuck and industrial designer Serge Beaulieu. The name Hybycozo stands for “Hyperspace Bypass Construction Zone,” a nod to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. The two first met in New York City in 2013, but moved to the Bay Area to make a series of works for Burning Man. 

“We decided to create a set of sculptures that could represent our fascination with the beauty of mathematics and the language of the universe,” Filipchuck says.

This temporary installation is one of many works the City of Laguna Beach Arts Commission hope to bring to the community.
