A ship sailing across the playa is cool, a fleet of them even cooler, but the impromptu pirate raid that swarms up on deck and feeds everyone rum? Pure whimsy. The odd, the fanciful, and the capricious are our every day environment at burner events, and while sometimes the art is powerful, moving and serene, more often it’s head scratching, WTF? hilarious, and just plain cool.
Art from the funny bone, art because fart jokes are still funny, art that you make because your inner 8 year old is in charge of the welder.
Art that makes perfect sense at 3 am when the tequila is just worn off.
Because you can, and it would be cool, and because if you don’t, who will.
