“Compound I”, proposed sculpture for the 2012 Burning Man Festival
Burning Man art is not commissioned..As artists are expected to raise funds out of pocket and by reaching out to community, any donations to help create and transport this piece of art are appreciated! Here for more info..
No amount is too small, every contribution helps and is greatly appreciated. All donations will only be used to purchase materials to build the sculpture. For a list of materials and/or the budget click here
(note: this is an image for a proposal..not an actual photograph -yet )
Dimensions for the ‘Compound I’ are approximate at this stage.
If it is determined that the underlying frame needs to be a full geodesic sphere (for structural integrity), the bottom curve will be buried and anchored under the desert surface with rebar or angle iron. If a 5/9 or 6/9 geodesic dome is more suitable, the structure will rest on the Playa surface, to be anchored with rebar.
Middle 3′ sphere: Resin, fiberglass, acrylic mirrors. Hand-made
Top 1′ sphere: Mirror-polished hollow steel.
Finial: Steel and acrylic. Between 12″ – 18″
