The HIVE has submitted a pig design for the upcoming Big Pig Gig.

The Gig is during the World Choir Games in Cincinnati this July 2012.

We are looking for a sponsor that will get us the pig to work with.

The Status

We did not receive sponsorship for our entry.

The HIVE pig is titled "The Sow of Music". It would be uniquely techno-interactive and incorporate a variety of circuit bending type surface-touch features that would respond to create interactive sounds.

We attended the ArtWorks Sponsor/Artist Match Event on Thursday, February 16th. While we have not yet found an Angel sponsor, we met a few other pig artists with similar ideas and goals.

We are considering to offer to collaborate with these other artists and use the HIVE studio space to assemble a combined entry if we are given the opportunity. We are considering to open a "pledgie" to see if we can crowd-source a group of small sponsors to get us to the funding goal.
