First of all, thank you for all your virtual, financial and spiritual support so far!
We're getting closer to our fundraising goal, having received almost 40% of our backing. We can't emphasize enough how GREAT it is to hear from you, to know you've been sharing our project, joining our cause, and helping us reach our goal step by step.
We can't do this without you.
You might be wondering what we've been up to since the project began 15 days ago? Well, a hell of a lot!
Thanks to Gavin (Weber Industries) we now have a warehouse in Elephant & Castle to build our prototype, store all the materials and test out the interactive elements. We'll share some pictures from there soon.
The LED light cannons had to be re-designed to ensure they don't burn out during the festival, and they're working very well now. Everything's been stress tested and is ready to be ordered. We can't wait to play with the pressure-sensitive floor pads once they arrive!
Hortense has also been testing out a interesting new pattern. Check it out below and tell us what you think!
Thanks to YOU we've reached almost 40% of our target so far! That's £2 in every £5 we need. Now all we need is the other £3! We can do it. Please keep showing your support for Lûz, sharing it with your friends, strangers, lovers, brothers, mothers and help us reach our Kickstarter target. There’s just over £7000 to go and it'll all culminate in us bringing this beautiful big kaleidoscopic pyramid to some fantastic festivals this summer. And who knows where we'll go after that?
To help things we're also hosting a fundraising event at Bosse & Baum, a gallery just off the King's Road in West London on the 1st of July. We'll have drinks, canapés, a short talk by yours truly and some super nice prizes to be won in an auction.
Pop by if you're about!
We've uploaded a little video of us in along with this update! We thought it would be nice for you to put a face to a project. Sami has moved to New York for the next 6 weeks, so he'll be our man on the ground out in the States. Alba's been in Berlin for a few months now, but she'll be back in London on the 19th of July in the run up to Secret Garden Party. Here comes even more international Skype calls and crazy intercontinental collaboration sessions!
Just under a month until Secret Garden Party! Wow. There's still so much to do, so we're all getting a little bit crazy but we're very excited. Every spare moment is spent doing a little more logistical planning, troubleshooting, 'what if-ing?', talking to our festival contacts, and preparing to put on an absolutely wonderfully mind-blowing installation. Just for you :)
Last but not least, we've added some more rewards WOOP WOOP! You'll find them in the rewards section of our Kickstarter page. Tuck in!
That's all for now.
We'll post another update from the warehouse in a few days.
Take care and speak soon.
