Looking Into Storage - overbright (3610)
The Broad provides two windows through which you can view their storage area
. I've never heard of something like this before. This is the first time I've seen museum storage. I overbrightened this photo to bring out details in the shadows.

"The Journey" - For 2017

I saw this at a Burner presentation/party Saturday evening in Palm Springs.

The Journey model (0880)
It's a spiral wooden tube that has been bent into a donut
and you can play with it when it's on the playa. 42 feet across. The ring is 10 feet high. The perfect dimensions to attract all sorts of adventurous men who want to play jungle gym. Clothing optionally.

The Journey model (1315)
Although it looks tempting, it will not be burned
.

The Journey model (0892)

The Journey model (0893)
On the interior walkway
. Please to note that the structure had already attracted at least one adventurous man who wants to play jungle gym.

It'll have audio and video, too, that will respond to the environment somewhat. Dan Reeves, the brains behind this, specifically said it would respond to art cars when they approach. I consider that a commitment. Here's what the artist had to say - all becomes clear!

Crowdsourcing to come, he said.

He's looking for volunteers.

Pink

Pink at the Billy gathering (6905)
This past week I was at a Billys gathering in northern California. One of the Billys asked me if he could paint my whole body pink. Who am I to say no? Oddly, it was the white paint in my pubic hair that drew the most attention.

Burning Man Getting Real

John Curley reports that the Man is up (but still missing his head), the Temple is looking like the Temple it's going to be, and center camp has all its walls up (actually, center camp has no walls). Major art works are coming up nicely. The bugs are gone. Temps are predicted to stay below 90° all week long. There's just the matter of smoke from wildfires.

Follow the link above for many photos.

A team from Mediated Matter and MIT's Department of Mechanical Engineering developed this precision technique.

Some of the objects created will go on display at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum on Fifth Avenue in New York City next year.
