I'm planning a big art installation for Burning Man this year. Code name "The Silo," the proposal is for a 75 foot tall silo constructed with nearly 2,000 wood pallets, and illuminated with interactive, sequenced LEDs. The silo is a conceptual response to the metropolis theme, addressing that theory that cities could not exist without agriculture (in short). Best of all, the plan is to BURN it at the end of the week! It's a very ambitious project, but a very simple one. Images: [url]http://gallery.me.com/ryanw79/100114[/url]
I'm looking for volunteers to:
[list]â€¢ Help with tough manual labor on the playa, PRE-event.
â€¢ Assistance on-hand during the event, handy people, gophers, just help if needed.
â€¢ General help with fund raisers throughout the year, worldwide.
â€¢ MOOP officer and clean-up crew (we will hopefully burn Friday allowing all weekend to clean up).[/list]
Don't expect to get a free ticket out of this or anything. Remember your principles ([url]http://www.burningman.com/whatisburningman/about_burningman/principles.html[/url]). This is all about participation, collaboration, and creating something to be proud of... art!
No virgins please, go and experience your first burn, have fun!
If you're interested in helping send the following directly to me at email@example.com
[list]â€¢ name/playa name
â€¢ previous camps or registered projects you've worked on
â€¢ years you've attended[/list]
This info is just for the proposal, but if you have any relative experience (carpentry/construction, management, etc.) please let me know. Oh and if you have a fear of heights you'll want to let me know, not a problem, just let me know.
