This year for Burning Man I pitched an art project idea to the Center Camp Cafe art team, and was accepted!
My project is called “Time Frame”.
The “Time Frame” is a classic antique table-top mirror, with the mirror removed, mounted on top of a 5 foot tall self-supporting pole.
Looking through the frame gives a glimpse “back in time” to the view as seen through the frame the day or night before. For example, participants looking into the frame on a bright sunny morning may have a view of the kinetic action as seen from that exact spot late the night before.
Every day / night of Burning Man I’ll take another picture of the scene in Center Camp through the frame, take it back to our photo printer, print a new image, and return to update the frame with a new view (in both directions). Older views will be mounted, and left on display for viewing or to take.
This is my 10th trip to Burning Man, and I am really excited to have an “official” art project of my own for the first time. And so far, it has turned out fabulous!
Here is the Flickr Set to follow along with the new photos each day.
And here are some quick highlights so far:
