Driving towards Black Rock City At the ticket gate

Dan Das Mann and h..Grass in the desert! A massive bus
showing the (related?) Temple Of Joy in the background
A dust storm hits
and then it rains with lightning
And finishes off with a fantastic sunset
with my camp and robot from 2003 project in foreground

Opera Arkipelago o..e Ark of the Nereids

La Contessa
an incredible art car hidden on top of a school bus. It just floated across the desert surface. It was enormous. That's a person up in the crows nest.

Grope-A-Klown I finally run into Nora again Human Ball
not the most efficient way to travel
This boat was handing out cotton candy!
Bless them!

David Best's incredible Temple Of Joy Was made from the scrap wood
of those dinosaur cut-out skeleton toys
The Temple A rocket car on the playa

A wedding in front of the temple
that I bumped into
Looking at the Esplanade
from the Playa. Center Camp is on the right side, the ball on the left is the Kaleidosphere which you could stand inside. Hard to describe.
Nate Smith of Firetown with Well I'll Be A..equed Monkey's Butt

his flame vortex
which I was proud to help setup and run
There were two industrial fans
which pushed air into this huge cylinder
Zebra Man
came to see the tornadoes
It took a while to find the vortex

But then he figured it out And just pulled them out of the air,
so to speak
