Burningman 2012 @ Black Rock City (BRC), NV -- Aug. 28, 2012 – 224 viewsBurningman 2012 (Tuesday, Day 2): People gather inside 'The Temple of Juno' by David Best of Petaluma, CA. An alter, tower and walled courtyard exemplify awesome design, details and delicate precision-cut wood that reflect perfect harmony throughout the temple. Guests bring images and mementos to memorialize what and who has passed, meditate on the meaning of existence, and rest inside enjoying the space while retreating from the brutal heat and savage sand storms at BRC.
Burningman 2012 @ Black Rock Desert, NV -- Aug. 27, 2012 – 230 viewsBurningman 2012 (Monday, Day 1): Mayan Tricycle created by Wizzard. Joined the others and it takes a lot of weight 'ballast' to make the calendrical wheels spin by stepping on the wood slats and climbing while pulling down the thick white rope. Luckily, spent the night at Circus Circus Reno, played the slots and won, had Coronas for breakfast, bought cases of Corona and water, and by 3 p.m. was happily parked inside. Couldn't find Buzz, Josh, or Leslie, so camped at 5 & C with Looney Tunes & The Temple builders -- BIG THANKS to my new angel friends.

Burningman 2012 @ Black Rock Desert, NV -- Aug. 27, 2012 – 329 viewsBurningman 2012 (Monday, Day 1): The MAN at dusk is the party place to be with all the other bees buzzing inside the honey hive. This year we party inside the MAN as the colors change and the music ROCKS the desert. Bzzzzzzz. The Man Base Pistil by Gregg Fleishman of Culver City, CA, is "a 35’ tall double helix tower of modules nested on an octet truss space frame. One helix is a honeycomb structure of five cubic geodesic modules, each with 12 panel parts and 24 connector parts interconnected in a spiral array based on a 3D checkerboard. The second helix is an octet truss space frame in the same spiral including broad stadium steps providing both continuous seating as well as a wide stairway. Made from router cut Finland Birch plywood and fit together without metal fasteners, it is imminently reusable. The structure represents a flower pistil (the female reproductive organ of a flower) surrounded by the stamen which is the Man Base. Each helix can be climbed, providing an opportunity for participants to swarm the pistil like bees pollinating a flower." http://www.greggfleishman.com
Burningman 2012 @ Black Rock Desert, NV -- Aug. 28, 2012 – 277 viewsBurningman 2012 (Tuesday, Day 2): Donna at E-GO prior to the oh-so-fabulous Abraxas Dragon/Media Mecca Tour, where we met the artists of The EGO Project, Laura Kimpton And Michael Garlington from Fairfax, CA, who spoke of their project. Check DonnaVision for Kimpton's previous 'word' projects with the letter 'O' in MOM, LOVE and now, EGO. "For the fourth year Laura Kimpton brings you a Large word. This years larger-than-life word is EGO. EGO will be made out of Wood and 10,000 gold replicas of Trophies. EGO is 20 feet tall and 60 feet long. After the week of enjoying this beautiful EGO sculpture we will light it on fire, symbolizing the burning of our EGOs and beliefs of superiority." http://laurakimpton.com/about
Burningman 2012 @ Black Rock Desert, NV -- Aug. 28, 2012 – 295 viewsBurningman 2012 (Tuesday, Day 2): Artist JJ Holoubek talks about his current project 'Panoptoconotopia' that "Illustrates the wonders of the glorious Security State" to BRC armed enforcement officers who appreciate art on the playa. Based on Holoubek's previous project 'Fink, Inc' (2007), he explains his thoughts that there has been increased surveillance since the 911 attacks and demonstrates this with a mounted surveillance camera man possibly recording the activities of those who come to regard the orange suited inmates locked inside the fenced cells with a TV, bible, football and other thought provoking items. firstname.lastname@example.org
Burningman 2012 @ Black Rock Desert, NV -- Aug. 28, 2012 – 227 viewsBurningman 2012 (Tuesday, Day 2): Tree of Transmutation - A sculptural tree of translucent suspended figures and cocoons for Burning Man 2012 by Kevin Christman of Talent, OR. "From a distance, you see a tree with strange translucent fruit suspended from stems radiating out from the center. The tree and its branches spring from the playa and carry the suspended figures out from the center trunk. Upon closer approach, the figures appear as female forms, twice life size, in various fetal positions, suspended in space. In the center is a wooden pyramid pieced intricately together like the stonework of a Mayan wall. The top is capped in a copper plate with the tip intersecting a globe of half size skeletons with a small female figure suspended in the center. The large figures are suspended from hooks to freely rotate and be removed for physical interaction in a variety of creative ways to make them silent voyeurs of Burning Man. At nightfall the figures return to be illuminated as dazzling suspended gems. ... i.e. Big girls rolling around the Playa! The tree is made of fabricated steel branches that spring from the Playa and carry the suspended figures out from the center trunk. Upon inspection the six pods appear to be female forms, two times life size, in various positions, suspended in space." It was wonderfully relaxing to stretch out in these 'flying yoga' cocoons while the artists were still assembling the structure. Peaceful, serene, reflective ... wish I would have had more time to meditate here amongst the night stars and scorching days in the desert sun. http://kevinchristman.com
Burningman 2012 @ Black Rock Desert, NV -- Aug. 28, 2012 – 323 viewsBurningman 2012 (Tuesday, Day 2): The Temple of Juno by David Best of Petaluma, CA. "The temple is returning back to the traditional style of temple that our community is familiar with, that we have built over the years as a temple crew. The temple grounds will incorporate a central temple building sitting within a large walled courtyard. The courtyard is accessible by four entrances, on each of the temple sides. Benches line the exterior space, and surround the temple. The scale of the central temple building is smaller than the last years of the temples, but will be the most detailed temple we have built. The central building will have altar space, occupied floors, and a tower. Intricately cut wooden panels and shapes will cover the courtyard walls as well as the interior space and the altars. The temple’s large enclosed exterior space, along with its interior structure and altar space is intended to address the needs of our community, to reflect and meditate in private." Special thanks to EVERYONE on the Temple Crew :) http://thetemplecrew.org/juno.html
Burningman 2012 @ Black Rock Desert, NV -- Aug. 28, 2012 – 232 viewsBurningman 2012 (Tuesday, Day 2): Sandstorm at 'The Temple of Juno' by David Best of Petaluma, CA. This year's walled courtyard and downsized structure offers awesome design, details and delicate precision-cut recycled cedar. Guests can bring images and mementos to memorialize what and who has passed, meditate on the meaning of existence, and rest inside enjoying the space while retreating from the brutal heat and savage sand storms at BRC. Parked my bike and boarded the Big Purple Tour Bus; took this photo while the very knowledgeable and well informed guide introduced us to the art and the artists on the playa.
Burningman 2012 @ Black Rock Desert, NV -- Aug. 28, 2012 – 283 viewsBurningman 2012 (Tuesday, Day 2): Sandstorm at 'Burn Wall Street' just past 'The Temple of Juno' as seen from the Big Purple Art Tour Bus. Many artists are still scrambling to complete their projects due to many extenuating circumstances including inclement weather (heat and sandstorms) on the playa. This might be Day 3 since Burningman officially opened and it's unusual to experience so many installations still being built, which means less time to enjoy since we burn everything in a day or two or three or four!
Burningman 2012 @ Black Rock Desert, NV -- Aug. 28, 2012 – 234 viewsBurningman 2012 (Tuesday, Day 2): Bathroom Beacons celebrates at the Toilet Bowl, where two lanes of bowling are available next to the Playa Porta Potties. It's a rare sight to behold toilettes anywhere but near the campsites, so having convenient access to these lovely cabinets is quite the sight and often even a godsend, especially for the artists, builders & community.
Burningman 2012 @ Black Rock Desert, NV -- Aug. 28, 2012 – 289 viewsBurningman 2012 (Tuesday, Day 2): Anubis by Dan Fox is "a 50-feet high, interactive combustible structure in the form of a sitting jackal, with serpentine, spiral stairways leading up the spine to a 49 square foot platform in the head. Anubis represents both the ephemeral and the eternal, the single moment of a phase change. The work conveys to participants a reflection of what they take and hold from the festival when they depart. Anubis is the companion from this life into the hereafter, and it is that sense of frailty, nakedness, and solitude that carries the message of unity, companionship, and strength found at Burning Man into the default world."
