The Boston Cod Piece is a giant Codfish on the Circle of Regional Effigies (CORE) at Burning Man 2012. (Structure and Framing Funds)
The body of the cod will be climbable with wood scales for people to write and draw on. Inside the fish, will be shade and seating to provide an oasis from the heat and dust during the day. Using LEDs, the body of the fish will be outlined while the ground is bathed in watery tones. To represent how fertility (Burning Man's theme this year) leads to abundance and potentially followed by exploitation and collapse, at night a skeleton outline of the fish will occasionally shine representing the collapsed cod stocks in the northern Atlantic.
100% of your donation will go to funding this project. As a group, we
have already raised $1,000 but need to raise more for lumber, lighting,
electronics, decorations, and transportation to the playa. All labor is
volunteer and will not require any money.
Thank you for your time and donation.
