>> the monkeys at Burning Man

November 4, 2007

we’re looking at “the monkeys” at burning man 2007. the piece is called homourobouros. it was the talk of black rock city and we couldn’t get enough of it day or night. the red headed boy on the exercycle is mine (as best someone else can be). as i understand it, the bikes made solar lights flash; drumming signaled the monkeys to spin and the snakes to slither into their mouths. have fun finding out more about it.

ouroboros is often depicted as swallowing his or her own tail.

while i was attempting to post this info, i was also trying to win MIA tix on KCRW. the phone actually rang but no one picked up. this illustrates the point well.

    That is an amazing and surreal photo. That’s it!! I’m coming to Burning Man with you next year. I must go at least once in my life. When are the dates? I’m putting it in my calendar right away.

    I’ve been meaning to switch to wordpress for ages now, as there is way more functionality than blogspot, but just haven’t taken the time to learn it.

    You, my dear, are officially OFF the luddite list.

    Hey Danika!

    Burning Man is Labor Day Weekend…you could fly in to Reno–but you might consider it takes the same amount of time to drive there from LA as it does from Seattle…
