Garbage In, Garden Out! [Jul. 5th, 2006|08:15 pm]
demi0urgos
You know you're working at a cool place when your boss greets you to your first day of work with a hug.

That's right folks, I am officially being exploited for my willingness to work for no money, I repeat, no money, by the Black Rock Arts Foundation.

The purpose? Scrap Eden, where we turn a ton of shit in to a shit ton of art. An entire FIELD of art. A forrest, a jungle, an orchard of art.

The idea is to find artists and communities and dorks with nothing better to do, motivate them to make pieces of art out of pieces of trash, and take these pieces and install them at BurningMan 2006!

But that is just the Pilot! BRAF isn't about giving grants to burningman artists, BRAF is about bringing the style of art one might find at teh man, and displaying that art in to communities.

Here, we hope to get communities to build their own pieces all over the world.

It's ambitious, I know, but all I have to do is worry about the next 5.5 weeks...

...and we have SOOOOOO much work ahead of us.

If any of you are interested in making sculptures of trash, no matter how far away you are, tell me about it. We'll make it happen.

Uncle Fro wants YOOOOOOOOOUUUU! To make a trashy tree!

...as long as those communities are San Francisco, California.

...and put them in San Francisco, California.

...sorry, I'm overwhelmed by my BM2006 project queue and have been getting progressively grumpier every day.

They don't call it "Bad Idea" for nothing.

That's not correct. One of our grant recipients is as far away as South Africa.

And no, that's not "Hate and Apartide" either.
