WE DID IT!!! A HUGE THANK YOU FROM STEPH AND ERIN.
4 weeks ago we started this Kickstarter campaign in order to buy 3,000 pounds of wax and Crisco and make the art show we have been dreaming and blueprinting for so long. To people who didn't "get it" it sounded obscure, even strange...we were SO NERVOUS! A lot was on the line for us: we knew the success of this fundraising period would determine whether this artwork would exist or not.
And because of YOU, the answer is: YES!
An astonishing 340 of you backers "got it!" and in 4 weeks we raised $45,712. OH MY GOD!!!! This amount of money is absolutely life-changing. Really. We are so grateful for this opportunity to buy our materials and get back to work. It is an honor and a privilege to make this work for you. THANK YOU FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY.
NOW THE REAL WORK BEGINS.
3,000 pounds is a lot to carry, sculpt, burn, melt, film, etc! Now is time for us to retreat into the relative obscurity of our studio and MAKE THIS WORK. We have proudly written every single one of your names up on the south wall of our studio. It is beautiful, especially glowing at night as the streetlamps come through our window. This work is possible because of YOU and we are so happy to have all of you up on that wall.
ALSO! THANKFULLY, this means we will no longer be sending so many e-mails. PHEW! Thanks for hanging in there with us. We will send a "survey" through Kickstarter to get addresses and reward/order details. From there, we will update you as we get closer to the show in Seattle this spring. You can also keep in touch with us by "liking KeseyPollock" on Facebook where we will post a picture every now and then.
A huge, warm, sincere THANK YOU,
Erin and Steph
