koro loko needs your help! fundraiser

We need your help to build and get our art project out to the playa this year! Any contribution- even small- or share on social media is REALLY appreciated! Thank you!!!

Koro-loko, or “heart place” in the universal language Esperanto, is a sanctuary to reflect on the action of love. In our koro-loko, you will discover an 8-foot tall billowing heart filled with thousands of tiny dichroic plexi-squares refracting a rainbow of light in all directions. Benches under light posts encircling the heart will provide a place to hunker, hang out, and daydream.

Like the exuberance of colors reflected by this heart, always-present and ever-shifting, this heart conjures the thousands of expressions and materializations of love we uncover in the human experience.

The heart structure will be built out of a steel frame, which will be minimally visible to the viewer, with clear cast acrylic rod ribbing in order to support and provide the shape the wire net fastened around it. A dichroic Plexiglas square will be attached to each 2’’ square in the wire netting, with over 4,000 total squares.

Lead artist Emily Nicolosi and build lead Ian Robinson are building this project over the summer in Salt Lake City, Utah. They are supported by their camp, The Pink Spot- an old school crew that loves interact as much as possible and get everyone on The Big Bunny, our art car.

Hi, why don't you jump on over to the greeters' thread and tell us a bit about yourself. Where are you located? How many burns have you attended? What or where do you camp? You'll get a better monitory return if we think this project is going to happen. Maybe you'll get some volunteer help.

Moderator note: your fundraising link cannot be posted outside this forum, so your introduction is still in place, but I had to take out the fundraising link.

Sorry about that. No problem, I believe a google search of "kickstarter" and "koro loko" should bring up the right page. Thanks!

Eplaya is small, especially on a laptop instead of mobile, this forum isn't hard to find.
