Burning…virtually

Every now and then, for about five minutes, I think I should go to Burning Man at least once in my life. It seems like such a unique experience, full of awesome art and interesting people. Then I remember it’s in the DESERT in the SUMMER and I think maybe I’m good. I’ll just check out the photos and videos online each year for my own “virtual Burning Man.”

I think my favorite piece of this year’s art is the big BELIEVE sign:

Or not ... - Burning Man 2013

I even made this shot my wallpaper.

I also love this video by ekai¬†on YouTube, shot with “a GoPro Hero3 on a DJI Phantom with an Arris CM2000 motorized gimbal” (I only know what a couple of those things are, but whatever…the result is awesome).

What a cool, surreal view! Parts of this feel like they fell right out of my dreams.

Something Paper Scissors

Rock Paper Scissors

 

I feel stupid.

I don’t know how many times I’ve walked by this sculpture in the last couple years without realizing what it is. It wasn’t until I overheard a group of students on a scavenger hunt mention “Rock Paper Scissors” as I walked by. It was all I could do not to stop and stare at them, awestruck.

There’s a rock.

And paper.

And scissors.

But I couldn’t put it together for some reason. All I can say is that I only ever really paid attention to the paper and scissors. I saw the rock only as a pedestal for the rest of the piece, not as part of it. I think that’s what tripped me up.

Yep, I’m not so quick sometimes.
