SEEKING: ladders and scaffolding

Post by carefactornil » Sat Aug 10, 2019 2:20 am


We're a mostly international/UK crew building this very large art piece on playa soon: ... 9-beyond#/

Because of the height of it, we need quite a few ladders and/or better yet, some scaffolding. As we're international, we don't have of this and we'd really like to avoid having to buy it all and then find places to take it - we're broke and busy enough! :)

We've spoken with the Artery and ASS, of course, and they can "maybe" help us but priority naturally goes to Honoraria, which we aren't. Assume same with DPW.

So this is a call out to see if there are any folks who might have some spare or can bring some?

For ladders, we really prefer A-frame step-ladders which go to a height of 15 foot to reach the top parts of our structure.

We're in Reno and the Generator from Sunday 11th and coming in from Reno with capability to take the stuff in our vehicles.

We hit playa on Tues 20th and will probably build in earnest from dawn on Wed 21st through until Sat 24 or Sun 25. We strike on Mon 2nd.

Anything anyone can provide during that time would be a huge bonus to us. Questions welcome.

Howdy, I'm the lead artist for The Tower,

We are bringing an 11-foot A-frame ladder from which you can safely reach 16 ft.

We arrive Thursday 8/22, will need the ladder briefly Friday 8/23. Otherwise am happy to share.
