*Fundraiser* Sun Tower by Wizzard and will BURN!

Post by ELECKTRA » Thu Jul 09, 2015 5:12 pm

Wizzard is back at it again!!

Bringing large scale burnable art to Black Rock City and we need your support! This years art piece is called Sun Tower, this will be the largest structure to date, is climbable and will be a daytime burn! That's right, a DAYTIME BURN involving all of you!!

Please take a few moments to check out our campaign and if your able, we would love for you to contribute.

About the Sun Tower: :2228 years after Archimedes is said to have destroyed an attacking Roman naval fleet using mirrors, we will bring the Sun Tower to the playa and try to set it on fire the same way.

This 30+ foot tall climbable tower will have a sun shaped mandala at the top. On Friday around 1PM hundreds of participants around the perimeter will be given mirrors to reflect sunlight at the center of the mandala where a target wad of cannon fuse will catch fire and set the rest of the tower alight.

Thank you very much,

Wizzzard and Sun Tower Team

Finally, a face to the name. I've seen him year after year but never knew his name. A couple years ago I helped him when he wasn't feeling too well after working his Mayan Wheel all day in the sun.
His work is fantastic.
Wizzard! :-D

We (an entire MV full of folks) helped erect his installation 'The End' in 08(?); love his work!

I'm really digging the idea of using a concentration of hundreds of reflected sunbeams to ignite the structure. ooooh, good one 8)

Contribution sent. I've loved your past projects. The Wave was one of my favorite art pieces last year, I can't wait to see (and have a hand in burning down) the Sun Tower! Hope to chat with you on the playa again Wizzard. Thanks for bringing another great piece.
