What’s this you hear?
A buzzing, tiny engine prickles in your ear, and you spy a flying creature made of glass and metal, emitting tiny puffs of steam. Or maybe that's an actual cicada, playing around your ears on a summer’s day.
And all around you?- a machine, a sunny testament to human ingenuity; a space where many parts move in perfect coordination, where the gears turn on a well-oiled lube of love and imagination. But can a thousand little gears collaborate? Can the pieces of this puzzle fall into place, as though some quantum magic runs the universe?
Is there a line between the man-made and the “natural?”- where the drum machine ends, and the sound vibration that travels through organic spheres begins?
There’s but one way to know the answer.
Be a part of the fabulous contraption.

G.L.E.A. BOARD MEMBER NEEDED
Great Lakes Experimental Arts, Inc., 501(c)4 is seeking a highly-dedicated volunteer to join its Board of Directors.
An ideal candidate would have some experience volunteering with Lakes of Fire as a Team Lead, or at least a Shift Lead volunteer in previous years. Technically, however, there are no prerequisites for joining our Board of Directors, other than a deep commitment to seeing Lakes of Fire continue to thrive.
Please email board AT lakesoffire DOT org if you think you might be the right person for this important role, or if you have questions about this open position.
EFFIGY DESIGN CONTEST!
Do you love designing, building, and burning big art? Do you have some great ideas for an effigy? Would you like somebody else to help pay for it, and would you like to work with a team to help make this vision come to life? The Lakes of Fire Effigy Council loves to do all that, and we are calling out for designs for the 2015 Lakes of Fire Effigy!
The Effigy Council is looking for an effigy idea that relates to Fabulous Contraption. But have no fear, if your idea doesn't directly correlate to the theme, thats ok, submit it anyway. The Theme is meant to inform and inspire - but if you have a great idea that will just knock the socks off everybody, send it in!
The Effigy Build Team is a group of individuals who have an idea they want to build as the Effigy at LoF 2015. Previous build teams have built a tree, pyramid, whale, factory and a big ship! What’s your idea? Let your imagination wander and come up with a fantastic idea.
If you are part of a team, super - but a team is not required to submit a design.
Please e-mail effigy ideas and submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 10, 2014
