Wandering through Time and Place

If you wish to drive a vehicle at Burning Man, you have to obtain a permit from DMV. I am not talking about the Department of Motor Vehicles here; I am talking about the Department of MUTANT Vehicles.

Cars, golf carts, trucks, and busses have to change into something completely different and unrecognizable to cruise through Black Rock City and out on the Playa. Only bikes are allowed to roam free. And even they are known to morph into dragons, horses, camels and a multitude of other creatures. (Check out my next blog.)

His art has been exhibited worldwide, been sold at Sotheby’s and is owned by a wide audience, including Robin Williams, Fred Durst, Nike CEO Mark Parker and Director Chris Weitz (Twilight: New Moon, The Golden Compass).

Amazing, right?
