Album:2010:08-29 Burning Man

A busy year for me.

Evidently when you are unemployed, then you work on your vacation.

This year I ran a theme camp and ran two art projects, Rock'Em Sock'Em Robots and Bike Jousting.

And it was great, but I tire of trying to inspire other people to do work at Burning Man, so I am going back to my tried and true anti-social method of doing projects that are sized for one person.

Up close at the temple burn
The burn Post-burn hanging out
as the city dismantles. Reeds wig. Awesome.
We found a town
that was doing waterboarding, so we decided to try it. It's unpleasant.

Victor gets extra torture. Take 3.
Victor pushes himself until he spills state secrets.
The end of a theme camp Fuck you, theme camp...
..I burn the sign. Burn baby, burn. Packing up to go home. Playing with propane again
...as we do post-burn We hit the dump
on the way out and see examples of why you have to have a solid shade structure.
