    ---GENERAL---
    The Glowfur Dome is a funky, fluffy and colourful geodesic dome construction out of auminium, lined with fluffy faux fur inside, mixed with a sound sensitive LED installation, sprinkled with some tripping visuals, and finished with amazing music on top.
    ---THE DOME---
    The base construction is a 3V 5/9 Kruschke geodesic flat base dome. 165 pipes, 61 bolts, 61 nuts and 122 washers form a dome with a diameter of 7.5m, 4.5 m height, 24m perimeter and 42 sq m floor area.
    ---THE FLUFF---
    90 sqm of fluffy white faux fur turn The Glowfur Dome into a soft mystery space. With lots of passion and dedication, we manually attached more than 3000 LEDs to the fur. Inside The Glowfur Dome, a large LED light installation will fill your night with twinkle and glow.

    PLAY

    --- THE COVER ---
    To protect all you lovely people (and all our LEDs) from rough weather conditions, we will cover the dome with transparent tarp on the outside, leaving the structure visible to you. During the day, it will be lit with sunlight inside, and when day turns to night, our LEDs will illuminate the darkness.
    --- FLOOR & HEATING ---
    To keep you warm and dry, we will add a simple heater and line the floor with tarp and soft mats. Let’s be cosy together throughout night and day!
    --- FUTURE VISIONS ---
    For some events, we are planning to put on music and work with video mapping artists. The Glowfur Dome can also be the framework for YOUR art project - we are happy to let our structure travel with you for various purposes!
    ---THE BURNING GLOWFUR DOME---
    The Glowfur Dome started as an art project within burners and we all highly value the 10 principles and are tryping to act and interact according to those .
    1) Radical Inclusion
    Anyone may be a part of our Glowfur Dome. We welcome and respect everyone, regardless of their background or appearance. We welcome YOU!
    2) Gifting
    Our gift to the community is all the work and planning we have done to turn the dream of The Glowfur Dome reality. We don’t expect anything in return, we’re happy to give.
    3) Decommodification
    The Glowur Dome exists because of the motivation and dedication of a group of friends and not because of sponsorship, transactions or advertising.
    4) Radical Self-reliance
    We as dome creators relied on our inner resources for creating the dome.
    You as individual or group are invited to come, explore, discover, play, help, enjoy, … act and interact in or through the Glowfur Dome while always taking responsibilities for your actions.
    5) Radical Self-expression
    We as dome creators express ourselves with the magic of the Glowfur Dome. DJs and artists can express themselves as well through the dome.
    6) Communal Effort
    Through the Glowfur Dome we were already able to create a network of creative cooperations and are happy for creating new connections.
    7) Civic Responsibility
    We designed the dome with having the responsibility amongst public welfare and towards participants in mind. The construction is stable, the cover attached, it’s protected against rain and lightning through earthing, there is big emergency exit, the whole thing is anchored to the ground, we’re checking the air quality with CO detectors and four fire extinguishers are always ready to be used.
    8) Leaving No Trace
    We respect the environment and we are committed to leaving no physical trace after assembly and dismantling the Glowfur Dome. We clean up after ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them.
    9) Participation
    Anyone may be a part of our Glowfur Dome. You want to come and help build: Welcome! You’d like to do a workshop in the Dome? Welcome! You’d like to play some music? Welcome! You just want to enjoy yourself in there? Welcome! Everyone is invited to be part of the Glowfur Dome!
    10) Immediacy
    We had the dream of creating a space where overcoming barriers that stand between us all is easy and natural. We already experienced that within the dome this is happening.
