Art Faves

Postby Radical Self » Thu Sep 08, 2011 11:52 am

The art that most affected me were the Octopus art car, the string of balloons stretching from 2:00 to 10:00, and the Trojan Horse burn. All 3 made me question reality. I love it when that happens. Truly spectacular. Thanks to the universe for providing. Which affected you the most?

Loved the face paint on that woman I saw Thursday. I think her name was Playa Girl.

The Temple, the Wall of Shame (that curvy staircase thing between man and temple) and that lotus. I personally really loved the man base, because I climbed it, and I have vertigo, but for some reason I wasnt afraid. Rites!

Congrats, RedHeaven, on having your rites! It seems that I missed quite a bit out there.

I am hearing lots about the skeleton work. And I would loved to have seen the Board Art Car. I never went into the Hellevator even though it was on my street. And I also would have liked to see the ATM machine unless 'delinquent' is joking - which would be a good joke, considering that I tried to look it up on Google but all I found were conversations about whether there would be an ATM on the playa.

Oh well. The playa took me where I needed to go. Next year I will try to see a lot more of the art. Thanks to all for your submissions!

The Temple - Amazing!

The Big Gazebo with all the Umbrellas inside - very sweet


All the Regional Pieces - what a great way to ring the man!

El Pulpo Magnifico - He really was!

Baby Blocks - well thought out piece

Burning Graveyard

And big kudos to the guy on the tandem bike with the flaming person pedaling furiously with him on Burn Night - Don't stop!

I didn't see a carousel, but there was a flying bike thing, it looked quite fun, but I never gave it a try. Reminded me of the wizzard of oz or ET.
