2018 Art Projects Submitted for the Fundraiser

Spin The Wheel

Spin the Wheel is an interactive burn game, an awful lot like the wheel form "Mad Max Beyond Thunder-dome". However It will have a twist... Instead of having just horrible punishments on it, this wheel will have quite a few fun things to do, prizes, and of course "Pinkie's Choice".

 

Bronarch: The Need Fire, Butterfly

The Bronach will be an otherworldly burning butterfly sculpture roughly 8ft wide, roughly 6 ft long,  and perhaps 4 ft tall.

 

Resonance

Resonance: the intensification and enriching of a musical tone by supplementary vibration. We seek to evoke the musicality in us all, to create and feed a collaborative Resonance through spontaneous community music.

The Button Zone

Imagine entering an area of buttons. Each button can make a sound, change the lights, can do *something*... it's up to you to discover the infinite possibilities of the button zone.

Educate about the Danish concept of hygge (comfort and coziness) and invite participants to bring a little piece of handcrafted hygge back home with them, in the form of a tissue-paper stained glass candle holder.

Cake Stand

Cupcakes are a joy often eaten on the go, but a slice of cake is something people stop and savor. This is what I learned during one of my all-time favorite burn days at Flipside in Texas when I baked nine cakes of different styles and flavors and served them at my snack station. Alchemy will be my first burn with my self-converted Sprinter van, complete with a tiny kitchen. While I've served snacks - a lot of snacks - at more than 10 burns, I've never had an on-site oven. I couldn't be more excited to share my basic love of cake with you lovely Georgia burners.



As I've done this event before, I have a clear expectation of what it will take to complete it and I carry all of the pans, kitchen accessories and frosting tips around the country in my van, awaiting the day I get to use them at a burn. I'll make a grocery trip to fill my fridge and extra cooler with ingredients, make anything I can ahead, like frostings and fillings, and setting up a burner-pinterest style stand to serve as many cakes as I can make in a weekend. With the groceries I've allotted in my budget I believe I can repeat my nine-cake assortment on at least two days of the burn.

 

The Hydration Station

We are looking for funding for fruit and water so we can provide different chilled fruit infused water recipes to everyone at alchemy.  Let's keep every one cool, hydrated and replenishing vitamins all at the same time.
