Re: The Pier 2

:). All the love is quite nice. But we have a ship to build :P. But seriously, its nice to see people liked it. These words will keep me going come June when half of us are complaining about building the art project and the other half are complaining about trying to find tickets. Bubbavic: GO FOR IT...

Re: The Pier 2

There will be a kickstarter, we need to raise quite a good bit of money. I think we will wait until Early spring for the first kickstarter, after we have news of if we are honorarium or not.

Ohh, and thank you soo much for the enthusiasm :).

Re: The Pier 2

Moonrise: I think the ship will be bigger in scope then the Trojan Horse, which leaves me a bit breathless to say as that was an impressive piece. It shouldn't be too hard you know to rebuild the entire Pier, wreck the end of it and then build a giant shipwreck at the end right,...right,... ohh yea,...

Re: The Pier 2

Not so worried about the frat boys, more concerned about people peeing on the pier. I am sure the frat boys played their part but I have met a handful of regular burners who did it.

Re: The Pier 2

I love both ideas. We don't need the laterns to work. They just need to look cool and hold something that casts light. We have been thinking along the lines of the fake fire leds. Still kinda debating this one. I have been impressed with the fake fire leds over the years and as long as you hide them...

Re: The Pier 2

I would love to do a Kraken but I think getting the level of detail we need would be like a whole new project. Although I have been throwing around this idea in my head of trying to create something akin to the lake opera stages ([url]http://twistedsifter.com/2011/08/outdoor-opera-on-the-lake-stages...

Re: The Pier 2

Its nice to hear that so many people want to support our little (giant) project. We need ship lighting ideas? And,.... any thoughts on how you all would like to see The Pier itself? More bait shop, a yatch club maybe? Cushions in the boats? Did anyone notice the Barnicles? What should we expand upon?

Right now we are considering an early kickstarter, maybe December and a Spring Kickstarter. We may do a third, but that is kinda up in the air. Its a challenge. We want to raise the money we can (as every penny goes right into making the project cooler) but we want to make sure we don't set the bar ...

I would really love if people just made Pier 2 their own and created their own events, gatherings, shows etc on and around it. It was so amazing watching it grow, but now people will be ready for it (mostly, the boat will probably stop people in their tracks). As such, we would love to have more big...

Re: Make Art, seriously, do it

I think the greatest thing about Burning Man is that it is an open gallery for anyone to be seen in. It is a chance for the fringe artist, the kid, the adult with a dream of showing theirs crafts to 50,000 willing participants. The growth I have personally experienced as an artist in the past 3 year...

Hi Everybody, I just wanted to remind everyone that has a dream to make a "something" at Burning Man or anywhere else to just do it. Seriously, you can do it. It takes a lot of work, and tears and a ton of blood and it is worth every second of it. And if you need some advice then ask away. I don't h...
