Are the windsocks separate from the shiny white stuff? If so, both
names and artists?

Whose trike is this?

Many thanks for helping give credit to the artists and to the hard work in getting this stuff up in harsh conditions.

I can help with this one! The artist is David Boyer and he's a member of our camp! He had a group of 5 or 6 of those out there by the man. His website is:

Glad you enjoyed his work!
A plan is what you vary from.

Destiny Lounge has been proven to cause cuteness in small kittens. Come visit us at Florin and 3:05!

The Vortex of Destiny is back! This time with more daylight hours!

"Where did you go?" by Michael Emery. His statement says "This sculpture is designed to offer the participant a variety of self-portraits. The multitude of small cut mirrors offers a cubist reflection. By choosing one's viewing location, the rising sun or the man can be positioned into the chakra of one's choice. Two people can stand on either side of this mirror and view the other as themselves, or one might look through the mirror and capture a Buddhist portrait of oneself as all and nothing. I've been participating in a series of conversations with my recently passed father. Usually I find myself asking him "so where did you go?" He usually offers me a response similar to any and all of the reflections described above...."

Many thanks, guys. I've checked the KSW site and don't see that trike on their list of art - since it is pedal-powered by two persons I have some doubts it's theirs, but I'll drop them an email.

KSW correctly pointed me to Spontaneous Combustion, who ID'ed the trike as theirs, by Scott C. Thanks very much for the pointer - it let me credit the artist.

Any other ideas on the other artworks?

The vehicle is Phallus de Playa, and it's part of JubJub.

I think this one might be "Resurrection" by Alex Milshteyn. "A thirteen foot tall Man takes form as he rises from his charred remains to float over the playa. As the night falls the life cycle is complete as the man transforms into a green glow."

I sent an email to JubJub yesterday with no answer and to Alex today.

Many thanks for the tips, Purple & Timezone!
