A vibrating, purring cush space with cat videos and cat toys in the Bag o’ Cats camp.
Optional but encouraged: detailed drawings, CAD files/SketchUp documents, sketches, or other graphic illustrations of your creative concept.
Will it need power?
If it will need power, what is your power plan?
1600w inverter generator (already purchased)
Does the piece incorporate flame effects, moveable pieces, and/or is it climbable?
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?)
We have been building out the Purr Pocket for three burns now, identifying ways to improve it each time. We have a good dome structure and recently bought a camp generator so we don’t run out of purrs halfway through a burn, but we still need more cushions and vibration. Temperature regulation has been an issue, and for flipside we desperately need fans! In the future, once we have all the infrastructure in place to make it comfortable, we hope to keep adding more decorative pieces and interactive toys to trap all the crazy cat people.

What is your timeline detailing the planning, creation, installment, and removal of your project?
We are coordinating storage, transport, install and tear-down of the Purr Pocket to include all camp mates. Install takes about half a day, and tear-down can easily be done on Monday in time for GTFO.
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.
$50 x 4 20″ fans + $70 x 1 night magic bed vibrator + $10 x 20 large washable cushions = $470
Have you received funding from any other entity or regional for this piece previously? If so, who and how much?

Assuming a covid safe way: in 2022-2023 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.
Can’t think of anything
Assuming a covid safe way: We will be having the 2022 Ignition Philter fundraiser in Austin after the fall town hall (usually held in late September/ early October.) Would you be willing/able to bring the piece back for that event?
