Justin Wagner

Steering Committee

Justin inspired it all. His crazy ideas and infectious enthusiasm were larger than life. When we met him he was building lasers and putting on shows with a giant tesla coil. He loved Burning Man and used it as a stage to share his ideas and refined them with increasingly reality-defying results. He loved talking to people about their ideas, and challenging them to express those ideas in the biggest ways possible. His generosity with his art, time, kindness and encouragement touched many people in his various communities. Sadly Justin passed away in March of 2016. Laser Juice would not exist without Justin, and we strive to embody and celebrate that spirit that helped inspire and encourage us, and touched many others.
