I was invited in early 2018 to collaborate with textile artist Cameron Ann Mason and her Dusty Nation team on thier Burning Man installation. I provided the metal sculptural centerpiece to a movemented art installation conceived of by this creative, energetic team. I had no idea exactly what I was getting into. I had heard of the Burning Man festival for many years. The process, installation, festival and aftermath were eye-opening. It is a kaleidoscopic other-worldly event. 70,000 people arrive gradually to a blank desert canvas and transform desolate sand flats into a vibrant arts-oriented community. There are sandstorms and a severe lack of water. No money changes hands but radical generosity and self-reliance insures no one is endangered in this hostile climate. In the end, I a very grateful to have been included.
