2020 – “Cuddle Cave”


“Cuddle Cave”


Crawl in and down the tunnel to a comfy cuddle space where you can create a unique experience. Complete with gifts inside!

Will it need power?


If it will need power, what is your power plan?

It will be placed in the front of a new camp, Bass Gravy, who will provide power

Does the piece incorporate flame effects, moveable pieces, and/or is it climbable?


If it does incorporate flame effects, moveable pieces, and/or is climbable what is your safety plan? [(Note: if flame effects are used, your project will be subject to inspection by the Burnable Art Lead, who has final say if your project will burn during the event).]

Have you completed any other large scale art projects? (In this media? Where and when? How did the project go? Do you have pictures or recordings?)

This project was given a grant for Myschievia 2019 and completed just in time. Now that it has been through its first burn, we are even more prepared for the second. I have added more to the outer crochet plastic layer, reinforced the structure, water proofed the tents and tunnel, and learned a lot about how to place it just right.

How much money do you need? (Up to $575) We are looking for a thorough itemized budget and the amount of grant money you are requesting.Please include a reasonably researched estimate of the cost of the materials you expect to need.

$100. For blacklights to make the gifts inside glow, and an extension cord

What is your timeline detailing the planning, creation, installment, and removal of your project?

It will be set up and ready for guests Thursday night through Monday morning. All installing and maintaining will be provided by Bass Gravy

Optional but encouraged: detailed drawings, CAD files/SketchUp documents, sketches, or other graphic illustrations of your creative concept.

We would like the artists to give community workshops outside of Flipside. Do you think you have a workshop idea that could be provided to the community? If so, please tell us what it is.

This outer exterior is created by crochet plastic bags. I would be happy to do a workshop on how to make plarn (plastic yarn), how to crochet with it, and the benefits and possibilities of salvaging art supplies.

We will be having the 2021 Ignition Philter fundraiser after the fall town hall (usually held in late September/ early October.) Would you be willing to bring the piece back for that event?

I received $100 from Myschievia 2019 to cover the tents and tunnels.
