31019692_1532998988397538_r.jpegWe are embarking on a new journey collectively in honor of our beloved friend George Simon, and building a memorial sculpture. This sculpture, Dot the Dog, will fulfill a dream that George had expressed to his camp mates in 2017.

Our process will continue to be documented here, from concept, to building and to the ultimate memorial, the burning of the project at sunset at Burning Man on Thursday, 30th of August 2018. George's love for Dot and his time at Burning Man will live in our hearts as we dedicate ourselves to fulfilling George's vision. 

Dot will be represented by a twenty foot wooden sculpture. During the day and night participants will be welcome to leave their notes and images and walk into the base of Dot to interact with the sculpture. At night she will light up with a beating heart, loving eyes, and a beacon like glowing red heart. 

Join us on Facebook to follow our build progress and updates from the Playa! Come visit us on playa at 2:00 and outer Playa!

Thank you so much to everyone who is helping to make Dot Goes to Burning Man possible! Your generous support means so much to us. We were able to build Dot's head and front legs this past weekend here in Los Angeles. Her other bits and pieces are stacked and labeled for transport to the playa. We are also having dedication plaques created to honor George. If you are going to be onsite we will be burning the installation on Thursday night at 11:59pm. We have lots of video and images to share with you! Thank you!
