Burning Plywood Art Piece?

Postby jcliff » Fri Nov 30, 2012 8:16 pm

I'm in the planning stages for an art piece to install in the Center Camp Cafe. It will be a 48" square of plywood with wooden shaker pegs installed. The plywood will be painted with non-toxic water based paint. The pegs will have 1,000 3" x 2" wooden tiles hanging from them on little strings. The tiles will be decorated with the hopes, prayers and wishes of our citizens with non-toxic marker and paint pens.

So my question is, is this plywood and non-toxic paint/marker piece ok to burn in the Center Camp Cauldron at the end of the Burn? Any screws for hanging will be out of it before burning. I know alot of plywood gets burned on playa, but I'm not sure it would be ok to do it at a public pyre.

Any thoughts or advice? Many thanks!

Sounds cool! You should contact the installations@burningman.com - they handle all general questions about art installations. Tell 'em what you've told us. They'll either have an answer for you directly, or put you in touch with the right people (Earth Guardians, etc).

Thanks Trilobyte. They got back to me right away with a big hell yeah! BettieJune suggested burning it in the Man fire after it falls....an even better idea.
