We are building two pieces that may be displayed together or separately (not sure yet). They are part of a larger set that will eventually be created.
The first, which are the Transforming Totems, are part of a piece of Marvin (CORE 2013) that was built and burned. We are creating these as permanent pieces that are coated in colored epoxy so that they will be gorgeous as a daytime piece and covered in LEDs for a night experience. The pieces will be responsive to music and put on a light show.
The second is a set of the Grand Rings of MesmerElda. These rings went in 2017 as stand-alone and without the plasma cut panels. This year, we plan to bring at least 4 of the 7 large rings as plasma cut art onto the rings and cover them with LEDs on the outer and inner circumference of the ring sets.
We are seeking fundraising help with both. This will allow us to both create the pieces for the 2020 playa year, and to permanently install them when they are brought home. Every participant in these projects will be a part of their creation and should take pride in their help. We plan to list out all the people who help on this so that they can be proud of what they helped create.
The pieces, once installed permanently, will be surrounded by cameras and live broadcast on a youtube channel so that people can show off the light shows and their work on the projects, including as they grow into the full art.
The end goal is a complete botanical garden and art community space for our region, starting with the inclusion of these pieces and growing out to something for everyone later. Something akin to a permanent burning man center.
