I spend about a week living in the Salt Flats of Nevada at Black Rock City (BRC) for the Burning Man festival. I still have dust in everything: my hair, clothes, lungs, etc …. It was completely worth it. Actually, my camera is full of dust as well, I am amazed that I was able to download my photos off of it. As this course is about the appreciation of art (visual, auditory, and otherwise), I feel that this is an appropriate first post. BRC is a city of 50,000 people that is created for a single week. Every aspect of the city has an artistic intention, and it is amazing the extent of art that is created in not only an extremely harsh environment, but also for such a short amount of time. Regardless, it is impossible not to be in awe of the artistic forces that form the city and make it a place completely open to any type of creative expression.
