randy polumbo

while i organize my thoughts from this year’s burn, here’s a fond memory from 2008:

i was biking through the playa at midnight when i came across a colorful garden of glowing sex toys*. it was a solar-powered art installation by randy polumbo, a pioneer for off-the-grid living. polumbo’s art was the talk of many that year, as it bobbled slightly in the cool desert breeze. you can view additional work by visiting randy’s website. AND for my favorite part—go here > videos > the grotto and garden of manifest destiny to see randy talk about his art and his experience at burning man.

Watching the video about the "making of" reminded me why I love to make art. It's fun! You get dirty! Other people do it with you! Yay.

Also: we are going to Burning Man. Maybe when Dara is around 7 or 8. 5 or 6? Your photos and posts make me want to go baaaaaack!
