Donation Rewards!

The donation rewards are being prepared and should be mailed out before New Years.  I'm waiting working on a simple design with a graphic designer that I hired on fiverr.com.  We're coming up with a cool design for the T-shirts.  In the mean time, I'm printing the magnets and preparing the playa dust!  Sorry for the delay!

Cargo Drop at Figment Festival

I believe we'll be bringing Cargo Drop to Figment Festival at Clark Park in West Philadelphia on October 6.  This is an opportunity to come check out the piece if you haven't seen it at Freeform or at Burning Man.  This will likely be the last time we display Cargo Drop, so come check it out.  Figment seems like it will be a lot of fun!

Donate to Cargo Drop!



To go with this year's theme of 'Cargo Cult' the Wobble Family from Philadelphia is shipping some crates of magic and mystery over the lands and oceans. But they need your assistance to finish construction and buy jet fuel for this "CARGO DROP"! These life size crates have something inside. Something our team from across the USA has been working on for months; raiding thrift stores, digging through dumpsters, soldering LEDs and putting together puppets. There is another world to discover inside these boxes! Please donate to help us finish the project and get it across the country to Burning Man. Thank you.

Cargo Drop is nearly finished!  All that's left to do is some last minute touches, and then we pack it on the shipping container and hope it gets to the Playa on time!

You can still help us cover the cost of this project.  Please donate on the right side of this page, and check out the donation rewards.  We're super thankful to all the people that have already donated, and we can't wait to see you in Black Rock City.

The Resource Exchange

While looking for recycled lumber from local theater companies, I found out about a company in Philadelphia called The Resource Exchange.  They collect lightly used lumber, and anything else from theater companies and other sources, and sell it at high discounts.  It's a great place to get cheap supplies for art projects, and they have a ton of other awesome stuff as well.  They had office supplies, fabric, lighting, lumber, and all kinds of trinkets.  Check it out, they're located at 2829 Cedar St Philadelphia, PA 19134.

We got several 2x4s, 3 sheets of 3/8ths plywood, and some 2x3s, all for under 30 bucks.  They let us use their tools to cut everything down so it would fit in my car.  I was amazed at how much cool stuff they had inside, and also at how cheap it was.  I would have spent twice as much getting the lumber new, and the appearance doesn't detract from the project, so this was a great option for us. I'm definitely planning on using this service again in the future.





Here's a quick walkthrough:

Cargo Drop at Freeform Festival

Freeform Festival was this weekend, and we debuted Cargo Drop!  It seemed like people really responded to the project and enjoyed it.  People played with the parachute, and liked the interior of the box.  Some people walked right by, but I think it really rewarded the curious participants.  Here's a video, and some pictures!
