For Burning Man 2011 our group, GravyBrain created a mutant Vehicle, Beau Le’Phant, the pink elephant.  Thanks to the generosity of Kickstarter backers, we were able to raise about half of the funds it took to get Beau to the playa.

For 2012 we are seeking help again from the community to help us bring this whimsical piece of mobile art to the Burning Man 2012 event.  The money we raise will be used for mechanical improvements to help increase Beau’s capacity including new suspension components, and for artistic improvements including improvements to Beau’s night lighting. 

Our goal with this mutant vehicle is to help create a unique experience for the viewer and rider that is far removed from normal everyday life that they will remember for years to come.  

With your help, we will bring this art back to Burning Man.  Your generous donations are a portion of what we will need to make this happen for this year.
