OK update 1

For those of you following along here, I am currently designing an art piece for the Burning ManIMG_0200 theme camp OKNOTOK.  After doing some sketching by hand, I have a pretty good idea of what I want to create.  The next step is to create a digital blueprint.  I have been working with Google SketchUp and having a great time.  Using the letters pictured here, I had to do some conversions to figure out the scaling for a human-sized sculpture.  I guess I did need so learn some of that math back in high school.

Screen Shot 2014-12-12 at 4.12.52 PMThe result thus far looks like this.  This is just half of the sculpture.  There will be propane puffers incorporated so that fire will be able to burst forth from inside the letters.  Supposedly there is going to be a class/workshop in the LA area after the new year for fire effects and art – this will be a good opportunity to learn about the pyrotechnics that will bring this art piece to life.

 

Burning Man 2015 prep begins…

Yup, it’s December 2014 and we are already starting work for OKNOTOK at Burning Man in 2015.  Some call us insane, some roll their eyes and say its ‘too early’.  But if you are a Burner, ask yourself honestly, does it ever ‘stop’ once you are introduced to the culture and experience of Black Rock City?
