Your Daytime Fireworks: On TRLab’s Partnership with FlamingoDAO
Did anyone else see a flamingo for the Daytime Firework reveal on Day 11 of Cailendar? We’re dedicating this one to FlamingoDAO, our partners in Your Daytime Fireworks.
Who is FlamingoDAO?

FlamingoDAO aims to support, purchase, archive, collect, and potentially tokenize important pieces of this ecosystem.

On our partnership
A message from our Co-Founder & CEO Audrey:
“I’m thrilled to share with you all that FlamingoDAO will be collecting a significant number of firework packets for their DAO treasury. We have LONG been fans of Flamingo. As one of the most established blue chip NFT art collecting DAOs in the space, FlamingoDAO is comprised of serious art collectors (including Snowfro!), and advised by leading curators.
We are energized by their belief in TRLab, and believe that it is historically significant for Your Daytime Fireworks to be alongside their other blue chip collections. You will be able to crosscheck the owners of these NFTs back to FlamingDAO wallet addresses.” — Audrey Ou

More on TRLab and FlamingoDAO
For more on TRLab and FlamingoDAO, here’s our fast Q&A with Audrey:
Q1: FlamingoDAO is confirmed as a super-collector of a full set of 90 ignitions for Cai Guo-Qiang’s Your Daytime Fireworks. What is the significance of the full set?
A: Yes! Now that fireworks are being revealed, we are hearing from participants who want the full set of 90 individual fireworks, including 9 special Cai fireworks still to be revealed. Others want to build a collection by theme, color, pattern, or region of the world. Many more are igniting firework packets on special dates — birthdays, anniversaries.
We love the creativity and we are grateful to FlamingoDAO for its support of TRLab, Cai Guo-Qiang and for paving the way for other collectors in this space. The roster of Flamingo curators who are identifying innovative artists and backing important projects represents the best in our field.
Q2. Which NFT art projects in Flamingo’s collection particularly resonate with you?
A: Innovation, Access and Curation are TRLab’s core principles, so naturally we are fans of Chromie Squiggles by Snowfro — who is also a participant in Your Daytime Fireworks. We also love Tom Sachs Rocket Factory, Meebits, Moonbirds (see my avatar) and we can’t leave out 1/1 art pieces like ‘The Overture’.
Q3: What does it mean to other collectors of Your Daytime Fireworks that FlamingoDao has one of the rare full sets?
A: Part of FlamingoDAO’s mission is to identify significant trends in NFTs and to collect and archive important projects for the future of the ecosystem. Having Your Daytime Fireworks as part of the FlamingoDAO collection is an incredible honor for TRLab and for Cai Guo-Qiang. It’s an important signifier of mutual respect and future alignment.
