Utah is a lot closer! Many people have room for projects, and the cost of living is lower. If a burner community from Utah will contact me, I will definitely consider the possibility. Then again if I can find an artist residency, that often might mean room to live and work for free ( I had that in ...

California is expensive, other alternatives may be Reno, or Boise, ID, or Salt Lake City, UT. Salt Lake has a surprisingly large and active burner community. I am very flexible. I love California, know some people already and feel it's nearby the Playa but I would welcome any community, which would...

I think that Home Depot offers prefab wooden garages.
Would those be in sizes 20 x 30 feet and 12 feet high?
I know you Americans love big cars, so maybe.

If someone would know that answer, please let me know.
The nearest Home Depot from my studio is approximately 10.000 miles away.

thanks!

Three carports will give you the 20 x 30 feet but the height would only be ~ 8 feet. The carports are ~ $200 each. You could try to get extra leg poles to raise the height but then you have to deal with making tarp walls and such. That's a pretty useful suggestion. Actually it really needs to be a ...

Question about work spaces/art residencies for a foreigner.

I am working on a new big interactive project and want to take it to the Playa next year. As a foreigner it's always a huge undertaking without the infrastructure of home and having to take care of everything which in your own country can be taken for granted. I have been there before ( I think I am...

Question about pre-fab barns/sheds/buildings etc

I'm working on a big interactive art project. I would like to have the project inside a small building so people can only enter through one door and you have a controllable environment. I could build a new building, but a more practical solution might be that I realized there are a lot of pre-fab ba...
