Since what we're building is different than a lot of art on Playa, we expect to have a significant impact on how BRC is experienced this year (especially since this year's theme is the Multiverse). On the flip side, doing something so unconventional makes the work that much more difficult. That means we need as much help as we can get trying to pull this off.
If you think this project is worthwhile, there are a number of ways to get involved and make it a reality.
Like everything we do, we're trying to accomplish this with minimal waste on a miniscule budget. Still, there are some things only money can buy. If you can help, we'd appreciate if you can make a donation. This is an entirely volunteer run effort, and every penny we make is going into materials, equipment and transportation. As always, every little bit helps. $10 could buy 15 feet of LED lighting and help our installation to be visible at night. Below we have a parts list that includes exactly what we'll be buying with all the money we raise.
As a bonus for your generosity, if you can donate at least $50 and, I will personally make you one of the QMB prototypes like the one shown in the video.
We're going to need a lot of different equipment and materials. For materials, most of what we need is basically junk anyway, but it takes a lot of effort to collect it. We need used tents, tarps, LED strands, scrap metal and electronics goods. We also need a ton of destroyed bike tubes. And if you have a Gieger counter lying around we could use a couple of those too. Also, any previous BRC camp material will come in handy for keeping a roof over our heads during all of this.
We have a detailed item list that you can view here if you'd like to contribute something. If you have anything useful and you live somewhere in the SF Bay Area,, and I'll come pick it up from you.
Finally, if you really love the project and you want to really get your hands dirty, we have a bunch of stuff that still needs to be built. We'd love any assistance or advice. We are also looking for two more crew members to come with us to the Playa this year so please reach out if you are interested.
I will be continually updating this page as we make progress, but if you want to get email updates you can add your email here. I promise the emails are all very anti-spam.
