Did you enjoy the journey and the burn of the Fools Ark at Burning Man 2002 ?
Did you interact with the Grey Men at Burning Man 2003 and maybe even burned one yourself ?
Did you get harassed by our officers of the Department of Dreamland Security at Checkpoint Dreamyourtopia in 2008? But still managed to secure your Dreampassport stamped with the right visa to dream?
If you want to see me return with a project from Amsterdam to Burning Man in 2011 now is your chance to help make it happen. Just as with immigration procedures in 2008 this time we are going to bring something from the Default World to the Playa again. Only this time it's money!
Money at Burning Man?????? But is it really Money? Or are the banknotes with denomination Zero, One Million, and Infinite Art? The Playa presents an excellent ground to begin rethinking values. During that moneyless week in the desert the Exchanghibition Bank and its bankers will confront the participants and turn every transaction into an interaction, questioning the values of Art and Money, with a hopefully lasting impact in the Default World as well. Are you willing to sign our 'Spiritual-Karma-Laundering-Contract' in order to get rich?!
Unfortunately we do need real money to make it happen. As you can imagine printing the banknotes and printing the fabric and making the suits was pretty expensive, but also getting the exchange booth to Nevada from Amsterdam will cost money, so Yesterday we went live with our Indiegogo Fundraising Campaign
The very first Infinite Banknote was officially presented to Larry Harvey mid-June in the Magna Plaza Shopping Center in Amsterdam (more pics: http://blog.artasmoney.com/?p=240173
), but now everybody will get the chance to own an Infinite Amount of Money........
And no worries that any money left will end up in greedy bankers' pockets. Next step after the Exchanghibition Bank will be to start working on filling a swimming pool with money - the Pool of Plenty. But that's another story...............
Please help by either spreading the word or by donating and as a reward getting the chance to turn yourself into a 'Millionaire' or even a 'Banker !
Yours Bankingly, Dreamingly, Paintingly and Burningly
