About this project
Cover Me! is going to be a simple, functional spot at Burning Man 2014. It will be a spot for others to grab some shade from the sun, which is a huge thing at BM. Bare bones, it'll be EMT conduit and tarps. Ideally, the structure will get dressed-up with bits and pieces of colorful cloth and really cheap lawn furniture. For those taking a bit of a rest at night, some solar lighting so that it can be found, since it's pretty dark out on the playa.
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge here is the actual set-up. The high desert where BM is held has a LOT of wind. When setting up a structure like this, you assemble the top, then put up the legs. Well, the top would be a large frame with tarps across; a huge sail. It catches the wind, not only could it move for a LONG distance, it has the potential to cause physical harm. So planning, making sure things are secure, and maybe a few extra hands to assist keep things safe.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
