Album: 08-24 Burning Man,

     Album:2015:08-24 Burning Man,

Burning Man number 15.

It was intense.

Arielle and I both became serious crew members of the Bijou. I was documenting how it was built because the future of the Bijou and of the Bijou build was/is an interesting and unsure question.

It was my longest time up at BRC so far, over two weeks. And the Bijou is awesome and incredibly hard work, so it took up all of the build and teardown time, as well as a couple of days to recover. Hence the incredibly small set of photos at BRC that are not the Bijou.

It's wonderful to be deeply embedded in creating something you love, and it's a great group of people to work with.

I do hope (expect?) to see the Bijou again, though a break from that much work isn't so bad either.

"Becoming Human"
was this beautiful robot at Center Camp. One of the best pieces I've seen. I thought it would be great if the arms would move over the week and eventually wield weapons
This is what happened.
I think I would enjoy talking to the artist. ( comments)
