Art Installation Questionnaire

Art Installation / Project Name: Project X

Listed On Public Map?: listed

Listed On Burning Man Website?: listed

Website Description of Art Installation: We'll know it when we see it.

Project X is the result of a study of group effectiveness in the
presence of ambiguity.
Project members are functioning on a need-to-know basis.
Right now, you don't need to know.

Date Of Arrival: Earlier

Associated With Theme Camp?: no

Theme Camp Association: n/a

Physical Description of Art Installation: Wizzard, Bob Marzewski, was invited
to coordinate the project as development largely because of his experience and
expertise with large wooden structures.
He does not know yet what form the Project X structure will take.  The
materials list suggests a structure on a scale similar to last year's
Pagoda, except that it will not be burned on site.

One thing we know is that the project specifically needs a direct line
of sight to the Man from the deep playa.

Scaffolding or structure over 15 feet high : yes

Holes dug in the playa : no

Interference with nearby art?: yes

Interference Detail: The structure will be brightly lit and we will have a generator.

Quiet Area Requirement: no

Dark Area Requirement: yes

Illumination Details: There will be lots of lighting powered by generator.

Project Footprint: The entire installation, with participants, will fit comfortably under
a 200' dome.

Leave No Trace Plan: We have a committed group of burners who are experienced with
large-scale art and know the ground rules of LNT.
- Our team leads have all done large projects which have good records for LNT.
- No large holes, other than for stakes or screw anchors.
- No burn in place.
- No small items to fall off.
- Most construction is being done pre-playa, assembly on site.
- We will disassemble and dispose in the public burn platforms.

If there are large public burn platforms this year that can be reserved we'd be interested.
