I'll throw some monies and hopefully some labour hours to this.

What dimensions of dome are you thinking we'll be able to get for $800?
Do we have the requisite tools at the space to cut / work the metal (I'm
presuming it's metal), and if not what do we need to borrow?

maybe let's slap together a wiki page with whatever details we have and
work from there :) https://noisebridge.net/wiki/Figment_2015

>> Hey Noisebridge, we could make some art.
