Helix Spire ~ Burning Man 2010

$1,680

UPDATE: August 7th
We have met and surpassed our Kickstarter goal. Sweet! A huge thanks to everyone who pledged to fund the Helix. Your generosity and feedback have been overwhelming. We can't wait to see you on the playa.

Helix Spire is a sculptural play toy, a climbing tower, a lookout 25 feet above the playa floor at Burning Man ~ Metropolis ~2010, Black Rock City Nevada

Mundane materials are used in a clever way to build a modest recognizable sculptural climbing toy which provides a good view and a point of reference for gathering and or play.

The Helix will be built twice. First at LARC near Conway Washington for Critical Massive July 19th through July 25th (Helixspire.com); then in Black Rock City for Burning Man, August 30 through September 6th, 2010.

All of the $1500 goal money will be used to buy materials. Money donated beyond the $1500 goal will be used to cover shipping and T-shirt /Swag costs. No donated money will be spent on labor, transportation or tools.

Thanks for your support.

    One hundred bucks? That's pretty damn serious. Of course you'll get all of the above, the fuzzy feeling, beer, gratitude, t-shirt but we'll also name a 2x4 in your honor! or if you prefer we won't name a 2x4 in your honor but we'll let you walk away with an actual piece of the tower after it's dismantled~
