Anybody who has ever looked at my blog for longer than a second should have noticed that I post photos in no particular order whatsoever. The whole idea behind this pulling-random-photos-out-of-the-hat thing is to keep us (you and me) entertained.
I for my part enjoy going back in time revisiting interesting moments by spending time on a picture (this one is from Burning Man last year). So what's in for you? I kind of hope it has a bit of a surprise element every time you see something new of my stuff popping up. But actually, I don't really have an idea how it's perceived on your end.
Just a month left until Burning Man 2013. Since it’s an odd (not even) year, I won’t be there (a weird rule I made up so I won’t be broke every year). Anyway, I’ve heard lots of exciting news about this year’s art, camps and projects. Here are two of those:
The Black Rock Bijou is returning
I somehow missed it in 2010, but last year I suddenly discovered it: the Black Rock City movie theater. It was standing all by itself in the middle of nowhere. Such a fascinating piece. Not speaking of the surprise when stepping in: the theater was fully functional. After getting some candy, I watched a bit of a John Wayne flick. This year the Bijou is coming back and we have the chance to support the project. Here is the Kickstarter video. It has two of my pictures in it, which some of you might have seen on my blog before. Today I’m posting a new dusty one. Check out the video below!
The first Black Rock City Post Office
For the first time Burners will have the chance to send postcards from the Playa out to the so called “Default World”. As always, you don’t need to bring any money. Just take a postcard, write your message and your fellow post office burners will make sure your card will find its way to your loved ones outside Burning Man. How do I know about it? Well, there is only one type of card and I have the great honor to provide the image. Here is a little mock-up of what the card will look like. I wish someone would send me one
After quite a while finally a new Burning Man picture. I hope the term 'Burning Man' and images of bones don't scare you away. It's not as macabre as it all looks. To me such a happening is about boldness and about practicing the process of thinking out of the box. I have this suspicion that these are the qualities we need to find new solutions and ultimately make the world a better place.
One person who does exactly that is Thomas Heinrich and his startup at http://photocircle.net – through photocirlce you can buy photographic art for your walls and by doing that, support social projects around the world. I talked to him today and got some great news. By using the coupon Fluck15 you can now save 15% on all your purchases on photocircle till the end of July. And yes, the coupon works with all works. It's not limited to my stuff. Enjoy!
