A team of Pyro Professionals would like to bring the art of FIRE&LIGHT to the 1MileClock Project at Burning Man 2011!
While the 1MileClock project was very succesfully funded on Kickstarter, an expert team of Pyros would like to add the element of FIRE and a new technology called Pixel Lighting to the ongoing project. Three of the Clocks Towers" (3-6-9 oclock) would have installed a Fire Cannon on the top spire. The fire would emit a huge fireball and "BOOM" randomly thru out the night via remote control.
The "Pixel Lighting" would be installed similar to a Christmas string of INCREDIBLE & totally MIND- BLOWING effects around each of the towers, lighting up the face and artwork installed on each tower. "Pixels Lights" (www.coolneon.com) are cutting edge technology in that each LED light will emit virtually ANY color in the rainbow independently of each other. The entire strand will "morph" and "flow back and forth" in a myriad of different patterns, colors, hues and special effects. They Chase, Flash, Dim, Twinkle and dozens of other "clock custom" pre-programmed effects.
In order to add these incredible works of new art to the 1MileClock, our new "Pyro Team" needs to raise the neccessary funds to accomplish it. A Total of $3457 is needed to fund the Fire and Lighting of the 1MILEclock Project at Burning Man.
Check out the fun and very exciting "rewards" we are offering for your generous pledge. We'll be updating our Kickstarter video weekly with new and crazy challenges in order to help us reach our goal! (The LAST challenge involves the clock projects creator/director (jim) getting a "CLOCK" tattooed on his newly BALD head!
Thanks for stopping by! We hope you enjoyed our video, and THANKS Soooooo much for your contribution and support to the "FIREstarter Project" on KICKstarter!

NO - We are only printing White heavy weight t-shirts in Large and XL only. Other sizes would be very difficult to manage, predict size quantities needed etc.
Due to exorbitant shipping charges outside the U.S. We cannot ship to Canada or overseas UNLESS arrangements for additional shipping have been made. - please send us a note.
No, the logistics of delivering rewards on the playa would be difficult at best. All rewards will be shipped possibly before, but probably after the event.
Artists and project volunteers should go to http://www.tinyurl.com/1mileclock and click the "Join Clock Chat" at the bottom of the information page.
