theme predictions for 2016

Da Vinci's Workshop is inspired by the Italian Renaissance of the middle fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries, when an historic convergence of inspired artistry, technical innovation and enlightened patronage launched Europe out of medievalism and into modernity. Our story will focus on the republic of Florence, for it was here, in a city-state of about the same size and population as Black Rock City, that humanist ideals, a rediscovery of science, and funding from a newly moneyed class of entrepreneurs fueled a revolutionary cultural movement that redefined Western civilization. Five centuries later, we will attempt to recreate this potent social alchemy by combining Burning Man art, maker culture and creative philanthropy to make Black Rock City the epicenter of a new renaissance.

It's funny you mention this...This was the scene around the corner from my camp after the man burned this year. One cop, one burner. After the cop unsuccessfully deployed his taser's arcing barbed leads he yells,"Stop right there, police." Yeah right! At first I thought it was "performance art", but soon realized as the cop was huffing and puffing, walking back in my direction while gathering up his taser's spent leads, that THAT was real. The burner had a helluva sprint going, he wasn't about to be detained. The one that got away, lucky him!
I'd never seen someone being chased by cops on foot out there before, always something new!
Sooner or later, it will get real strange...

I wish I had video, it was one of those "Absurd Moments at Burning Man". I was just going back to camp to layer up, as it was near freezing. A little hard to believe what I was seeing, such is the burn.

The man burns, everyone goes bat shit crazy...
