Background:

It is a mixed media user experience that is part art piece, part performance, and part social activism.  I will be presenting Marriage. as my Bachelors of Fine Art Show at San Jose State University on April 15th through the 19th. During the show, people will be able to explore what the meaning of marriage is. Together, we can redefine marriage socially and take it back as our own. 

Physical Gallery:

I will be creating a pop up style wedding chapel in my gallery. The small wedding chapels of Las Vegas will be a form of inspiration. The gallery will include all of the major symbolic objects that make it a wedding chapel:

  • Flowers
  • Pilars
  • Decorative Fabric
  • An Alter
  • Wedding Favor
  • Etc.
A projection of the digital chapel, in Minecraft, will be shown on the alter of the physical gallery. Viewers will be able to be a part of the marriages physically from the gallery in San Jose or virtually in Orwell.
 

Virtual Gallery: 

Like the physical gallery, I have created a pop up style wedding chapel in the town of Orwell in Minecraft. Viewers around the world will be able to participate or witness the wedding within the virtual environment. This will be the pimary location of the wedding ceremeonies. 

Funding Needed For:

  • Building Materials
    • Wood
    • Nails
    • Paint
    • Etc.
  • Decorative Accents
    • Fabric
    • Flowers
    • Wedding favors
    • Alter
  • Minecraft Server
    • Minecraft Accounts for the Couple
    • Server Maintaince and Population Cap

 

All funds will be used to make the experience as authentic as possible.

No matter what, I get the money that is pledged here. Anything will help me achieve my goal. Thank you in advance.
