Photos I’m using to tell the story of The Life Cube Project in Downtown Las Vegas

Over a year ago, I wrote down the goal of creating a Life Cube art installation in a city or museum around the world. The Life Cube Project in Downtown Las Vegas is a dream come true. The number of people that are helping make this all happen is amazing. We begin pre-build in Jan, site construction in Feb, and burn it in March. Plans include a place for people to write their dreams, goals, wishes, aspirations and deposit in the Cube, tapestry walls, multiple murals, photo archives of old Downtown LV, write-boards, and satellite Cubes in businesses and schools. Very exciting to be involved in this project. More details to follow. Below are some photos I’m using to tell the story to people in the Las Vegas community. #ephemeralart #lifecube #lasvegas #dtlv

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!
