To those who joined us on the lake at Eclipse, thank you. So many unforgettable moments were shared in our floating temple and we're speechless by what everyone brought to this interactive sanctuary.
We've finally returned home to Los Angeles and are overflowing with inspiration for what's ahead with the temple. Now more than ever, we need your support to sustain this interactive temple space.
Large scale art boats are expensive, but oh so worth it!
We've got about $2.5k of project costs left to cover- after we reach this goal we plan to create a series of smaller interactive temples in urban spaces. Our crew has personally taken on a lot of debt and donated weeks of nonstop pro-bono work to bring this vision to life and we need community support to sustain this shared sanctuary.
We've got some beautiful offerings to share as rewards below. Thank you so much for any support you can give to this ongoing project.
We're looking at Youtopia, San Diego's regional burn (and dreaming of Lake Merritt or the LA River for the long term vision) for the next appearance of the temple, but right now we need your help to shave off the debt and cover our travel/storage expenses. The sanctuary will be living in a budding permaculture education/event center in the Bay Area which we'll announce more details about shortly :).
Of course, we will still offer pledges for Genius Drums, though they will be limited and with fulfillment dates of 12/12/2017 (25% off) and 10/08/17 (market price) due to the high volume of instruments being made to pay for this structure. These instruments were floating in the lake and many have already been donated for ticket trades and fundraising. All Genius Drums come with free infinite lifetime exchanges and international shipping is split 50/50.
We're keeping our long term vision of this space as a surprise and all of our contributors will be invited when the time comes ;). Thank you all so much for bringing this project to life- we're honored to be able to make this dream come true with you.

ps- something special is gonna happen when we reach $9k in crowdfunding;)
