The Life Cube: Gratitude & Happiness!

Greetings and good news, friends!

We finished the Life Cube campaign on IndieGoGO, raising over $19,000 (far exceeding our goal of $15,000!!) this year from more than 200 donors. Every dollar will help offset costs of lumber, lights, tools, tickets, generators, fuel, trucks and transportation, and all sorts of other expenses we incur to construct and burn the Cube this year. We’re all so grateful for your ideas, donations and support.

I’m amazed at the impact this project has had, and continues to have on those who participate. You can be proud that your donation has joined with others to turn a dream into reality. NOTE to Burners: The Life Cube will be located at 3:05 and 1,500 feet from the Man and will burn Friday, Aug 30 at 10PM.

Please send your goals and wishes to thelifecube@gmail.com and I will deposit them into The Life Cube at Burning Man myself, or you can send them via postal mail to:

With huge appreciation,

About The Life Cube Project

The Life Cube creates electrifying public installations emphasizing interactive and collaborative art. Its dual mission connects art with community, and inspires participants to articulate and share their goals and dreams. This project encourages participants to look at their past, engage in the present, and set goals for the future. It is based on the artist’s belief that if you write down what you want to accomplish in life, the chances of attaining it is much, much higher! Tens of thousands of "Cube-ists" have already been positively impacted by their experience with the Life Cube Project, at Burning Man, in downtown Las Vegas and beyond. We're in the planning stages to bring the Life Cube Project to cities and arts festivals across the country and around the world! At each installation, local volunteers, teachers and school children, artists, builders, performers and other visionaries interact with the Cube every hour of every day. Its exterior, which incorporates many writeable and climbable surfaces, is a constantly changing swirl of painted murals, drawings, and handwritten messages contributed by the community. The Cube is brilliantly illuminated at night, attracting nocturnal artists and celebrants attracted by the colorful light show, with spots and lasers serving as a beacon in the evening skies. The Life Cube encourages the expression of goals, wishes, dreams, and aspirations in mural art, on wish-stick postcards, and with personal inscriptions on message boards. On selected evenings and weekends, area musicians and entertainers perform, culminating in a special closing event that gathers thousands of residents and visitors in a magical community celebration. At the end of the installation, in a spectacular fiery ceremony, the Cube and all of the gathered wishes are burned together and sent up into the Universe in a sacred shower of sparks and flame. Since 2010, the Life Cube Project has inspired over a thousand donors to contribute funds supporting the project, and even more have given of their time, talent and spirit. We're grateful for your support, as we hope to bring the Life Cube Project to more communities of artists and dreamers in days to come!
