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

Pulling off of camp gennies

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).]

Each stand will have an 11 watt laser mounted to the top. Laser approval will be properly submitted to the laser people and the laserist has an official variance from the FDA with all the safety information to run the lasers.

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?)

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

This is pretty much a 1 – 2 weekend project for our camp and should get to it by mid March. The installation and removal would happen the same day as our camp build and breakdown.

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.

We live in Denver, CO so workshops in Austin would be difficult, but as an idea CNC file prep training.

By applying for this grant you agree that if given the funds you plan to:

Work to compete your project by Flipside, Save and provide receipts of materials greater than or equal to grant amount by 07/25/20. If you do not provide this information you be disqualified from receiving a grant in the future., Complete a follow up report so we can learn

You may upload photos/recording of past projects here *You must have a Google account to do so.


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?


Have you received funding from any other entity or regional for this piece previously? If so, who and how much?
