Burning Man 2011

This project turned out to be a winner! After all the hard work we were so grateful to have everyone tell us how much they loved our serpents!

A really big thanks to my crew and family who hung with me to the end.

Thanks to Burning Man, our friends and to the burners who bought shade, for your financial support.

Because We Can

 These beast are so fun to drive. We slithered back and forth looking for prey to cull out of the crowd and surround with our 50ft long bodies. The horror on their face that quickly melted into a giant grin made my week night after night. Kisses to you all and sorry if I ran over your toes!

You guys did such an amazing job! I didn’t get to see the Serpent Twins on the playa, but have been following their creation since you first put the designs on your site. Absolutely brilliant!

One of my most magical memories is when I happened upon these amazing art-cars with some friends of mine on burn night. My angler-fish bike-light/street-lamp seemed to attract their attention, and we curled around each other, chasing each others’ tails, predator and prey indistinguishable. Thank you for adding to my burn! =)
