Bright Ideas – Call for Proposals

project materials

The materials and systems utilized in the Breathing Lights exhibit have been removed from their host buildings and stored away. Our goal is to see these components creatively repurposed. Proposals are welcome from artists, teachers, inventors, makers, builders, organizations or individuals.

The reuse can be artistic or functional, but preference will be given to users who transform the components into unique projects. Projects need not re-late to the issue of property abandonment or breathing. It is not our intent to see the Breathing Lights effect recreated of simulated.

 

SUBMISSION INFO

Interested parties will be required to submit:

  • A written description of how the components will be utilized.
  • Preliminary sketches and assembly details are encouraged but not required.
  • If the project will be available for public viewing or public use, explain where and how the public will access it. If the project is for private use, indicate who will benefit.
  • An estimated date of completion should be included with the project description.
  • Indicate the desired quantity of the components requested.
