I love your idea! And I really really want to see this out there. I just posted the link to your website on my facebook, hopefully some of the 300 or so burner friends I have on there will take a peek and like it enough to donate.

Please let us know when your kickstarter is up and running. Knowing myself how challenging it can be to raise money for a project (and the fear that if you don't raise enough you won't be able to pull it off) I want to help in anyway I can.

Keep up the great work. I am looking forward to walking through the tunnel this year.

Here is the graphic we will use for our t-shirts. Click the picture to see it bigger... the text in the inside is readable at the proper size.

Here is the graphic we will be putting on a thong or booty shorts on the front for the ladies and then on the back of boxers for the guys!

I made four antennas that have UV LEDs on them so they can be position to hang out an shine on my face. Then just UV reactive body paints on the face and a nice dark bathroom. I did it for All Souls Procession in Tucson last fall... I will be out by the Tunnel on one of the nights with the same setup to meet people! Keep you eyes out for me... fairly recognizable ;)

Guess maybe I could have made those for one of the rewards for the project... did not think of that.

Got two arches with their processors performing I2C communication tonight and synchronized! Check it out! This thing is going to be ridiculous!

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAjdGwDu3Qs[/youtube]

We still need help with our funding to bring all 100 arches to the playa, but I assure you if you fund it will be AMAAAYYYZING! I assure you I am working day and night to make this happen!

Please go check out our Kickstarter and if you cannot afford to donate, we just ask that you share with as many people as you can! Thanks for all your support!

Continuing to make progress. Check out the video of 5 arches all working together.

Here is a link to our kickstarter page:
http://kck.st/eDaZyQ

Well we have had a good two weeks of fund raising. 35% is a great start but there is a long way to go! I just want you all to know that I am diligently working on this project for you all! I have completed 5 test arches and uploaded a video for you to see the progress that is being made. For all of you who have made a donation, I thank you tremendously. This project is going to be really spectacular on the playa. For those who have hesitated, please take a look at the video and see a taste of what is to come. While our goal is only $6,000, the total budget for this project is over $16,000. So we could really use your support! If you cannot afford a donation, maybe you can donate a few moments of your time and share our page with your friends. Ok back to work!

Three weeks in and we are at 42% of our goal!!! Thanks for all the support. Let's try to keep this momentum going and get The Tunnel of Questionable Enlightenment to the playa! A huge thank you to all that have donated! If you have been thinking about donating, I encourage you to check out the website and see some of the videos and pictures of the progress. Its really going to be an amazing site. Last weekend we got about 100 feet away from the arches and it was truly amazing to see how crisp the colors were and how bright the LEDs are! This piece will be visible from just about anywhere on the playa! Please help us help you!

Hey Workinonit.

I was wondering if you had received our Zero bank note?
If so than I know that I got the right address and will also send you a Million.
Being a Millionaire should for sure help you accomplish your task of realizing your Questionable Enlightenment project!

let me know.

Cheers

Postby RangerTurtleDove » Tue Apr 12, 2011 2:16 pm

The more I see about the Tunnel of Questinable Enlightenment, the more excited I am. I knew how much when I had a playa dream and in the dream I was at the tunnel!

Great work so far, and liked the 3-D rendering on the video - good work!
