Burning Man 2012 – Album 1 of 2 

 

Eighth year in a row!
Who woulda thunkit?

Second expedition into the AWE of Burning Man with Tammy Remington, partner in life andAnomalyWorksNYC.

 

Finally this year, after 7 previous journeys, while walking along with Tammy one day, I refined the one element that drew me back here to the desert year after year: AWE!
Upon returning Tammy read me these lines from an article that had just been published, which were so much like my very own.

“(Joseph) Campbell’s first requirement was that mythology must inspire awe in the universe. Modern America was built on biblical desert mythologies, even if most Americans would want to do anything but live in such an environment today. Standing in the middle of the Playa — the art-driven center of the camp — at 2 a.m., whipping yourself around to find a perfect circumference of lights, mutant vehicles and sound systems the size of midtown Manhattan clubs is, to say the least, awe-inspiring.

The whole article, The Mythology of Burning Man, by Derek Beres, here.

 

Here are photos of our preparation for the journey, as well as photos only very slightly hinting at the magical experience of the event.
