I'm doing a video installation in Center Camp this year entitled "The Youniversal Mirror of the Collective Unconscious" As this is self-funded and I am a broke self-employed artist, I am asking my burning brothers and sisters to help me out with the materials I need, and their transport to the playa.
I am building a shed-like structure to house a TV monitor, with a window cut out where a partially rubbed out mirror will be placed.
1. Wood - If you will be arriving 4 days or more before the Monday start of the event, and can bring lumber for me (four 2x4s or 4x4s - 8 feet long, plywood for the sides, thick enough to support people potentially leaning on it) or perhaps even better, if you have an outhouse-sized shed that could be pulled apart and transported for me to reassemble on the playa.
2. Other Materials - If you live in the Pacific Northwest (I'm in Vancouver BC but occasionally get down as far south as the Portland area) and can provide: (I can pick up)
- a large mirror (27 inches or more in diameter and height) I will need this by June so I can start treating it and testing it with the video display.
-a 27" inch TV set - I would say this could be a loan, I will be attempting to house it in a sealed environment, but it's the playa and it might get wrecked by the dust or other elements... Same goes for
-a DVD player or VCR with looped playback function.
If you can help with any of these requests pls reply or email me-
