This project could not have come together as it has without the many people who helped, inspired, ass-kicked and provided reasons to realize our vision.
Enormous thanks to:
Elaine Miller – For getting in under the hood of our online desires and adeptly wrestling our corner of the web into a position susceptible to our will.
G. Wilikers – For being the perfect Graphics Technicians a queer could have on their side.
BootBlack Jac – For tirelessly supporting the artists through the contribution of hour after hour of inventory, labour and patience.
Special thanks to:
Romham Gallacher – For providing most excellent proofing services to our original iteration.
Michele Brayton – For patiently working through how to photograph very shiny buttons.
Alix Sales & Bryan Newson of the City of Vancouver’s Public Art Program. You two helped convince us that this project had an artistic vision worth pursuing. We too hope to see it on a billboard one day.
Out in Schools – High School Confidential (2010) – For giving us a reason to evolve a nerdy desire to make The Periodic Table of Cupcakes (that we first encountered on BoingBoing) into a fundraiser that would live on and on past the 2010 event.
Seattle Erotic Arts Festival (2011) – For establishing and creating a professional, curated event where artists whose practises reflect on the nature of human desire can be experienced.
And BIG applause to:
All our Contributors who allowed their words related to the elements to be curated into the Element introductions on this website. In addition to ourselves, these include: BrandyT, Suzy, KinkyTink, BJ Goglin, gingervixen, Karen Prig, Tara and more.
YOU. No matter how you identify. No matter where you are.
