95 Days till we Burn in Downtown Las Vegas
I took a few days off this weekend and there was that one day when I was like “what are you thinking?” With less than 100 days to go, the list of things to do is significant. Madeleine and I went through the list of all the people I’ve met with and spoke about The Life Cube Project since Jan 2013 — there are over 300! So what needs to be done? I need to get a Website up and running with a volunteer page, organize the tasks, coordinate with local artists, work on the schedule and logistics — including making sure things like the lumber is delivered to the warehouse in advance of the pre-site construction crew. There are schools to talk with about the project, deciding on locations for satellite cubes (what started as 8, is now 20). Arrange for places for the people coming from afar both to help with the build, and also hotel rooms for people coming to see the burn in March. Fremont East Studios is working on a video for fundraising, and need to decide on the platform (crowdrise, kickstarter, indiegogo). There’s the Fire Protection Engineer Report, City of Las Vegas permits, approvals, licenses, police, fire department, entertainment, street closings, and all sorts of other municipal departments and approvals. There’s design modifications, and photographs, muralists, and local artists. And then there is the event — after being on the city block between Fremont and Ogden, between 9th & 10th Street in the Fremont East District for 30 days, we plan on burning the Cube. You might find it hard to believe, but buring a 3 story structure in the middle of a major city is not something that happens without a few people weighing in their concerns, issues, and wanting to make sure this is a well thought out plan. The list goes on and on. We can do this! I know we can. We can do this! I know we can. We can do this! I know we can. We can do this! I know we can. We can do this! I know we can. We can do this! I know we can. We can do this! I know we can.
