For those of you who are curious to see what I'll be building for the next eight months of my life, take a gander at the final Burning Man grant proposal for Timescale.

Here's the lovely artist's rendering, by the ever-so-talented Star St. Germain (click for full size):

TIMESCALE artist's rendering by Star St. Germain

We should hear back from the Burning Man art grant committee in late February/early March. Cross your fingers that they choose wisely and decide to fund this project!

If you are interested in getting involved, either as a column sculpture artist or as a member of the build team, let me know.

Photos of the large concrete proposal box are forthcoming once Nicole pulls them off her camera...

Wow, this looks truly amazing, how far you've come since those germinating ideas @ BM08!

I know it's quite unlikely as I'm sure you'll have far more people way more experienced than me putting their hands up than you have spots, but I'd love to be a sculpture artist for this - the main reason I'm coming this year is I love the theme so much.

We'll be putting out the general call for artists in March/April. It's hard to say how many people will be interested, but definitely voice your interest if you'd like to do a sculpture!

We will be asking artists to submit a proposal for the piece they want to do, examples of previous work, or both.

hey morley,

i'm in the bay now. i'd love to lend you a hand as part of the build team. there's a decent chance i'll be off for a stint with dpw in the summer. but for any early work, i have my moments of handiness.

Stay tuned to this space - I'll be posting about work days :)

Assuming we get funded, the construction will start in earnest in April.

Wow, that's an awesome proposal! Very nicely presented. And you shipped them a giant rope?
