Grant Recipients

Burnt Oranges is proud to have supported the following projects.

Annual Interactive Art Grant

Le bateau des fantomes


The 2010 Interactive Art Grant was awarded to Le bateau des fantomes, an interpretation of a Viking ship comprised of branches and tree limbs harvested from the community. As part of the annual Sculpture Key West exhibition, the installation will be located near the ocean at Fort Zachary Taylor State Park beginning in mid-January 2011, and will ask people to leave messages to lost loved ones on the limbs and branches comprising the boat.

 

The Nauti Bus

The 2009 Interactive Art Grant was awarded to The Nauti Bus.  This project converted an old military bus into a moving piece of interactive sculpture or an “art car”. The exterior of the bus was transformed so that the bus takes on the appearance of giant nautilus spiral shells. In addition, the interior of the bus was converted into a Moroccan themed lounge and a dance floor was built on the roof of the bus. A DJ booth was incorporated into the design as well in order to create a more complete participatory experience by providing an atmosphere where guests can dance and otherwise express themselves to music.
