We're a small team of dedicated artists attempting to build a 30 foot long, human powered, fire-breathing dragon boat, to be premiered at Lakes of Fire this year, June 21. Our mission is to provide a mobile, interactive space that resides on and draws attention to our waterways and lakes. One that is safe, yet provocative, that draws on the myths of our rivers and seas, that challenges the boundaries of "raft" or "canoe" while remaining legally within those confines, and that inspires wonder for both participants (the raft will hold nearly 30 people) and witnesses. We hope and expect to re-use this craft not only at Lakes of Fire, but on the Chicago River, and beyond.
