In SoMa right now? Head over to the Minna Street Tunnel (under the Chronicle building between 5th and 6th) to see Glass Eye Shadow Pictures’ Shadow Tunnel, a shadow puppetry performance with live musical accompaniment. @y3rdua and I caught the first hour and it’s lovely and evocative. Can’t make it tonight? There’s an encore performance tomorrow (Friday). 7-9pm. FREE #SanFrancisco #art #ShadowTunnel #CommonGrounds

This year I got to help build the Man’s head — which is now taller than I am, evidently. #BurningMan #DPW #ManKCrew #ManBuild #BurningMan2017 #ManBuild2017 #BM2017 #DPW2017

“Is it October yet!?!” - What many Gerlachians (and some Burning Man workers) begin asking themselves this time of year. BurningMan #ManKCrew #DPW #ManBuild2017 #ManBuild #BM2017 #DPW2017 #BurningMan2017 #RadicalRitual #sticker #stickers #laptopstickers #materialculture

Divinity is in the details. A mitred lap joint on the Man’s face, before and after shimming and routing. Although this is the interior side of the piece, the countersunk holes will eventually be plugged and the entire assembly sanded by hand. The Man is not infrastructure — it is ritual. And in ritual, attention matters. #BurningMan #ManKCrew #DPW #ManBuild2017 #BM2017 #DPW2017 #BurningMan2017 #RadicalRitual #ritual #woodworking #details

Steeltoe and Paul assemble the Man’s face lattice. #BurningMan #ManKCrew #DPW #ManBuild #ManBuild2017 #BM2017 #DPW2017 #BurningMan2017

Yesterday’s adventure. To celebrate the halfway point of the build the crew was invited to make a pilgrimage to a very sacred place: Fly Geyser and hot springs. This magical location played a significant role in the early history of Burning Man, and was eventually purchased by the Burning Man Project in 2016. Despite its otherworldly appearance, the mineral formation behind me was an accidental result of human intervention: an abandoned geothermal bore hole drilled in 1964. #BurningMan #FlyRanch #FlyGeyser #DPW #BurningMan2017 #ManBuild #ManBuild2017 #Nevada #hotsprings #gpoy #minerals #BM2017 #BurningManLore #geothermal
