Since 2005, I've been making the journey to Burning Man, every other August or so. It's been a huge inspiration in my life. It's an outlet to collaborate with visionary artists on really impressive projects. It's also basically the only playground that exists to create such large scale projects outside of work.
Some of my contributions include projection mapping the base structure of "The Man", projection mapping a giant pyramid, animating LED stained-glass windows for a chapel installation, & building a Manta Ray art vehicle. Also over the years, our group has spawned a large-scale theme camp that contributes to the event annually.
