Trust

Updated: Apr 7, 2023

April 4th

See? I wasn't fooling!

Check out the mew site for this project.


April 1st (not fooling!)

I am building a new site for this project. So much to share and it will be easier to follow if I have a dedicated website and social media. Stay tuned!


*****************************************************


Trust was awarded a 2023 Black Rock City Honoraria!!!!

My dream of a cat butt-themed installation is coming true!!

As of late March, I'm still in the design finalizing phase and will be gearing up to get the fundraiser going. The grant was very generous but it's only 60% of what I need to make this happen so I'll be making donor perks and posting updates for that here as well as updates on the build and reaching out to volunteers for help.


The original Purr Pods CAD/3D designer, Heather Lea Blue, is back in the saddle and this year she also designed the logo.

Did some lighting tests in Oakland on an existing Purrsonal Purr Pod. Since I'm going 100% solar this year (working with Renewables for Artists Team (RAT)), I wanted to get a reading (checking amps used) on the lights I'm hoping to use. Each cat will have its own color but rather than powder coating them before Burning Man (we'll probably run out of time!) I will light each cat with it's specific color. That's what we tested.

Molly Gregory created another astounding illustration for me to provide a much better example of my vision for Trust.


Submitted my full proposal for both Trust and Otter Space on Tuesday, January 10, 2023. Eeeeeee!!! Now we wait.




Trust Concept

I've been dreaming of making a giant cat butt inspired art installation for years. Seriously!


When a cat shows you her butt, she absolutely trusts you. She's like, "Here! You're my human and I feel good about it." And it's funny!


My current idea is to create a ring of cat sculptures with their butts in the air, buttholes facing inward. Each butthole is decorated differently.


People stand inside the "ring of trust." In addition to the decorative buttholes, there will be a list of trust exercises posted inside the circle for people to try with each other. Maybe encourage people to share moments when they trusted themselves or others and describe what happened.


I submitted a Letter of Intent for this idea for this year's Black Rock City Honoraria - because you never know!!! - and was invited to submit a full proposal!!!


I love this idea of creating a safe space through humor and could really run with it.

*******

AND I was invited to submit a full proposal for another project I've been thinking about for a couple of years, Otter Space! That has its own website so go check it out!

Otter Space BRC Honoraria LOI image submission and invitation for full proposal.

Very excited about all of this. Now to work on those proposals!
