"Timing is Everything - The 24x7 Time-Star"
This campaign is to assist in covering the overall costs of creating a huge, outdoor interactive fire sculpture. I have received a seed money grant from Burning Man to start the process, and will need every dime raised from this to see this project through! Thanks in advance for backing this project and making it a reality.
The money from this Kickstarter will go towards studio rent, utilities, insurance, and the unexpected hidden costs that giant art projects always generate. ALL of the time to design, plan, build, transport, set up and take down this piece is fueled with volunteer hours! No one on the project gets paid a dime! This project is a gift to the evolution of the art.
This campaign is projected low, at $4,200, just to get the ball rolling. My overall funds necessary are easily three times this amount, but in order to ensure the success of fundraising I have chosen to shoot modestly and hope for the highest of rewards!

Burning Man 2012 Art Grant - Project Overview
As the Feminine clock based in "Moon Time" motion, The Masculine "Sun Time" (Time Star) is the documenter of all moments! The dance of time is male and female working together: the moment of conception, the beginning of life's success, fostering and instigating - gestating relationships- creating and developing - tilling the soil - toil of human kind to reproduce - to extend to breed to succeed! To fill this world with art!
The Time Star's teeter-tottering movement symbolizes the tides' push n pull. And the time's a-ticking kids--let's work together to make this thing rock! The motion sets in as the new beginning begins!
As always, this project is a continuation of creating community through art. The inspiration of bringing people together to share their philosophies, visualizations through symbolism, and verbal communication inspires the conceptual quality of the artifacts that are created through incorporating individual talents and ideas.
The inclusion of the community through the teaching process, and methods of this type of metal fabrication (building fire cauldrons), lends to the interactive essence of the project. Incorporating the individual and group intentions creates the context, interest, and intention that contribute to the overall magic of the sculpture.
In such, the creation of community leads to group ownership and connectivity through mass collaboration. This reinforces the unity of the sub-culture and intentions of our essence here on this crusty fire-ball of a planet.
