Hey guys! Be a Journey Pioneer and help kick start my first, large-scale Burning Man art project! I’m aiming to raise the first 10% of necessary funds to get this project off the ground and on the Playa for 2015.

Ever since my first Burning Man in 2010 I have been inspired to “go big” on the playa! The Journey represents my first attempt at a large-scale, community driven and interactive art piece. The sculpture will be an interlocking-wood-construction, climbable, light and sound sculpture that encourages social cooperation. The basic design of the structure is a 40ft diameter, by 10ft tall toroid (think doughnut), housing a infinitely long walking path that reacts to participant input and ambient playa events (a detailed animation/video is in the works…).

This money will go directly to pay for a working membership at MakerPlace and access to the equipment necessary for design and fabrication of the project. Your contribution to this membership will give you access as well, through me, to this equipment and my pledge to help you with any project that you come up with. Need laser cut dog tags for playa gifts? Want unique and cool signage for your camp, business or home? I’ll have you covered!

The total cost for the project is initially estimated near $15k for materials, transportation and installation. My long-term goal for funding involves applications for a Burning Man Art Grant, a Black Rock Arts Foundation Scholarship, and crowdfunding through Kickstarter and/or Indiegogo. However, this initial phase is crucial to put together the necessary working models and show that the project is viable.

Lastly, a huge thank you to all of you! You have helped me immeasurably through the last few years and have made getting to this point possible. Each of you has been a shining light along the way. Namaste, my brothers!
