Leafwing Flying MachineWe built a tremendous thing that converts sweat into joy. It looks a like a merry go round had sex with a teeter totter.

Temple of ToonsAt night come by for a multi-toon flashback and overdose of cartoons from the 60-90s. Come inside and relax with the animals and make your own shadow puppet show too. During the day you can come hide in the shade with the animalsIzzyNo
NepenthesNepenthes will be a 11’ tall stainless-steel pitcher plant sculpture. She will have four hydroformed pitcher cups. Hydroforming is a metal fabricating process that utilizes highly pressurized fluid to form metal. The stems are stainless steel tubes rolled and welded into an organic shape. The structure will be connected to a 48” x 48” base plate. Each pitcher cup will be filled with a bubble solution. The low-pressure propane lines will run to the manifolds then to each cup, which will create bubbles. At the top of each cup will be a low-pressure pilot light. Once the bubbles fill up the cup the pilot lights will ignite the bubbles. The propane filled bubbles are a fun and safe way to interact with the sculpture.KT Rex & David BrannBig Money Grant Round
ColordanceColordance is six 10ft poles, arranged in an arc. Atop the poles are 4x4 grids of colored lights, aimed at the apex of the arc. The lights cycle through patterns which create kaleidoscopic colored shadows. A control interface lets participants choose the vibe.Adam Demuri and the Space PotatoesNo
Hangry Hangry HippoHangry Hangry Hippo will be an interactive sculpture that blows steam out of its ears and lights up red because he’s just hit his last nerve! A big red button camouflaged in the hippo’s tongue can be pressed (but more like you are feeding it your hand) and the hangry hippo will blow fog out of its ears and light up. We all get a little hangry sometimes, and this hippo is no exception.Julie & Zane ClaesBig Money Grant Round
SundialThis would be a large sundial, approximately 25 feet in diameter. The gnomon (pointer) will be made from a 12-foot long 2"x12", tapered and painted white. The hour lines will be black paracord, and the hours will be marked with Roman numerals painted on tiles.Roger HarrisNo

Venus FireTrapThe plant will be a fabricated steel sculpture standing 10’ in height with three traps that breathe fire. Each trap will be approximately 3’ in length. The plant will have leaves ranging from 2’- 4’ in length. The plant sits on a steel base that is 4’ x 4’. Each stem/trap will be bolted into the base plate separately, this way we have the ability to remove and store them individually in order to create ease in transportation and installation of this project. In total the sculpture weighs approximately 500.7 lbs. Each trap will have a poofer flame effect.KT Rex & David BrannNo

Rammin’ Your RamenCreative and aesthetically pleasing art cart, that simulates old school street food cart vendors, serving ramen.Steph SchraederSeed Money Grant Round
ZagolithZagolith is a magical monolithic sculpture series inspired by my exploration into the combination of mild and stainless steels. The dissimilarity of these materials that bond metallurgically can represent the unity of our community comprised of diverse individuals. The original Zagolith sculptures appeared at Burning Man '22 and now live at Arvada Center. This new design is inspired by the concept of the original but is an entirely new geometry.Evan BeloniSeed Money Grant Round
The BestagonsHexagons are just the bestagons; they’re elegant, mathematically beautiful shapes found reoccurring in both the deepest recesses of geometrical theory and in the natural world. The Bestagons is a pulsing vibrant spiderweb lattice of LED organic hexagons, that start large near the top and become smaller till they reach eye level, where there will be embedded LED infinity mirrors (also in the shape of hexagons). It will be addressable, noice responsive, and approximately 10 feet wide to 5 feet tall, powered by outlet/generator, and be loose enough to be draped over tree branches (or hung up on a wall or canopy).BhavanaSeed Money Grant Round

Well?We’re playing with the concept of “whale, well, and wail” and using those symbols in our design. The temple can be a serious place, but it can also be a place to express joy, fond memories, and a place where we have often found ourselves telling our favorite stories of loved ones passed, often with smiles and laughter.PSDOTDESIGN - Jeff & Diana Merkel, JJ Condray and support teamBig Money Grant Round
