Whenever we do a new installation we’re always very lucky to have an interested audience who want to help us out. We’ve always thought that it was a very pleasant side effect of making interactive art, and we’re really grateful that you’d like to participate in our work this way!

Pillars of Light

With that in mind, a few of you have asked how you can help out with Pillars of Light, so we’ve put together a few suggestions about how you can help us out;

1) Help us spread the word!  Give us a signal boost!  Like us on Facebook!  Retweet some of our tweets!  Help us spread the word about Pillars of Light!  Tell your friends about us, send them a link to our site, post a blog about us and let your readers know what we’re doing, hire a skywriting biplane to make a great big sign in the sky, make a post about SubZeroArts in your favorite community, or ask Lady Gaga to tweet about us!  By letting people know about us, you’re increasing our broadcast range and increasing the support for our project, and that’s pretty cool, right?

2) Make a donation to SubZeroArts!  Okay, it sounds mercenary, but the truth is that it costs a lot of money to do something like this.  And admittedly we could use some help to upgrade some of our gear and buy some more equipment and ultimately make Pillars of Light the best possible installation we can.  We’ve set up a donations page on our website, and every donation we get will go towards making Pillars of Light into the  most  awesome installation it can be!

3) Get us in touch with more people!  Okay, this is slightly different from spreading the word.  While we love Ottawa and all of our friends there, we aren’t as well connected as we are here in Toronto, so we’d really appreciate if you could tell your Ottawa friends about us.  Maybe you know somebody in Ottawa that can help us spread the word, or maybe you have a friend that writes for an Ottawa event blog that might be interested in what we’re doing.  Maybe your sister lives in Ottawa and she can invite her karate club to drop by and see what we’re doing, or maybe your cousin’s archery team would be interested in an outing to see Pillars of Light!  Get them in touch with us so we can keep them in the loop too!

So there you have it, three simple things that you can do!   If you’re looking to be part of Pillars of Light, these are the best ways we can think of that you can help us out.

So what do you think you can do to help?
