Re: Fundraiser - Unicorn rides and sweet talks!

These modern and stylish unicorns have a bluetooth connection and can do a playlist from your phone. DJs and storytellers be in touch. We plan to do afternoon story time and nighttime beats. Got a friend in the arts you want to support while supporting this project? Send us an mp3, then hop on over ...

Fundraiser - Unicorn rides and sweet talks!

Hello all! We have an art project containing two carnivalistic bouncy [but stationary] unicorns that you can climb on. You get to sit atop and bounce while you listen to them talk to each other, or to you, or to your girlfriend. They might say something raunchy, something soft, something pretty...yo...

Re: Anyone attend WITHOUT the support of their spouse?

I just got back from my 5th burn without hubby. He's a fabricator too, as am I. He doesn't like me going, but he doesn't want to go...so.... I go. It's all good. I do my best to make him feel non-threatened by telling him who I'm camping with and texting him multiple times a day. Now that I am back,...

Seeking inexpensive projector & advice for art project

Hello! We are putting up a 20' shade structure with a wind chime inside. At the top (at 20') we would like to project some stuff onto an 8' diameter white weather balloon. The balloon will be tied down. The projector and source of video will be located at the top near the balloon, all attached safel...

The keyboards are used by a participant to converse with the part...

Re: Texting Art Piece

I was told that the amber panels are 300 Watts when all the LEDs are on. I can maybe get RGB panels too, and they will use up much more power. Probably a good average power would be 1/3 of all the LEDs on at a time: 100 Watts. An average deep cycle battery is 85 amp-hours at 12V. So, if the panels a...

Re: Texting Art Piece

Thanks for the replies! For power, I agree, probably 1 or 2 car batteries per panel per day (if this becomes a project we can get real numbers). I ran a project in 2011 on solar. A deep cycle battery could be recharged in a day on the Playa. I think that there are solar groups that provide solar for...

I sold my ticket into STEP and have heard nothing

Hello-
I sold a STEP ticket back into STEP about a week ago. I haven't heard anything at all.
Will there be any notification if it does not sell? Some kind of proof that I still own the ticket?
See you on the Playa!
