Last September our friend and Survival Research Labs crew member Todd Blair was severely injured following the SRL Robodock show in Amsterdam. Todd suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and his recovery time is going to be long and unpredictable. To help the financial burden of his recovery, SRL is organizing The Wall project, featuring a kinetic sculpture comprised of 25 gears, each individually decorated by a different artist, a metaphor for Todd’s unique ability to connect people and communities.
SRL is currently looking for participants for The Wall. A total of 25 gears will be created, with the goal of raising $500 per gear.
The completed version of The Wall with all of the gears will be unveiled at a special event from 3-9pm on July 20th at Rhythmix Cultural Works in Alameda.
This tangible symbol of our support for Todd’s recovery is inspired by his creativity and brilliance at creating magic as a connector between artists and communities. Together our challenge is to reach out to our extended communities and raise $20,000 for Todd’s care and rehabilitation. Once you commit to modifying a gear, you can share Todd’s story and start to raise money. We will help you meet and exceed the fundraising goal of $500 per gear. The unveiling of The Wall will be at the closing party of the robot art show at Rhythmix on 7/20/2008!
