Burning Man 2017 

Renewing the WOWs, again!

After a two year break, we’re heading back to That Thing In The Desert. 11th time for me – 5th for Tammy Remington, my partner in life and art (AnomalyWorksNYC).

2017 was a year of two life-changing events (one emotional/spiritual, one physical) – both of which which will play a big part in my return to the playa. The latter was a serious leg injury (careful getting off that bus!) which although now far along on the road to recovery will still seriously impact my mobility around Black Rock City.  Not easy for a both-ends-burning man!   The former event I wrote about HERE. I have contributed artwork to the Center Camp Café Kiosk from 2010 to 2014. You can see the works in the “galleries” at aleXanderhirka@nyc.com

For the last three years Tammy collaborated with related short stories, printed in small booklets to share. We’re doing it together again this year.

“(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 entire article, The Mythology of Burning Man, by Derek Beres, HERE.

“2017 theme: Radical Rituals.
The Anomalous Duo response: Question Rituals.

A serious leg injury in April had cast doubts on this planned journey. Healing is on the way, learning to walk again in progress. Onward!”
