You guys kinda missed the boat on this one yea? Seems like there are a lot more "This is serious, I must attack responces" as opposed to "this is saracastic I must snark responces" with even less "Hey, maybe if we pretend not to do drugs less LEO will show responces". Just saying, you know, less peo...

Spots are really cool devices, I used one to track a trip around the world last year. It allowed friends and family to pop on a website and see where I was. It worked everywhere I went, and has full coverage in NV. If you pull this off I will make you a reserved parking spot at The Pier. When the ti...

Ugly: I suppose your right. Less finger pointing and more doing. Ok, I like it then. He is making a rad sculpture for all of us to see. I do wish more people would take the time to create, anything, regardless of its origins.

Thanks for setting me straight.

repetition of art, art with slight varitations.

How do you feel about art projects on the Playa that are very similar to projects done in years past by the same artist? I have kinda been chewing on this subject since I found out that the artist doing Bliss Dance is doing another similar project. A taller woman, same porportions in a more extended...

Yes, angled. I'm optimistically hoping it may create an illusion that the playa is angled a bit when looking at it from a distance as the pier will have right angles in relation to itself and be slightly off in relation to the playa. The grade is almost imperceivable, 1.9 degrees or 4 inches over ev...

Its not hard getting early entry for your art project if you can show a need for it. Its worth registering your art if you are interested in going early.
