2016 Theme announced!!!!!!!!!!!!!! )'(

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.

I guess this just the theme of Zen as Fuck.

But I think it should be the overall theme.

DREAM BIG

cause that's when magic happens.

Then of course there was the TV show called Doing DaVinci--with Burning Man's own Flash Hopkins.
Here is a short trailer.

Kiiiiinda wish I'd read the title of the announcement but not the article - I should have left the design of the Man as a surprise to myself. Because if Man Crew pulls that off, it's is going to be amazing!
When he lights his streetlamp, it is as if he brought one more star to life, or one flower.
When he puts out his lamp, he sends the flower, or the star, to sleep.
That is a beautiful occupation.

It's not my conspiracy, but it does seem like some Social Engineering to soften the anti-rich rhetoric.

Man design sounds epic, though!

This is one of those almost painful occasions when I really really REALLY wish I could draw.

Above are da Vinci's Vitruvian Man, a piece of athletic equipment called a German Wheel, and a monocycle. So I'm thinking of combining them. Not that I would turn up-side-down, but that I would move my arms and legs like Vitruvian Man and by that action propel the wheel along the ground like the monocycle.

There would be ballast in the bottom of the inner workings to keep me upright while I traveled sideways.
