In 1995 I began the 16mm feature documentary film Burning Man Or Bust! and I hope to complete the shooting this year in 2000. You will see by my images that I concentrated mostly on the art cars for which the playa is absolutely the most ideal driving playground. I also focused on body painting which I enjoy doing myself quite a bit. I painted Tora Brown, Alexis Spottswood, my father Les Blank, David Silberberg and myself over the years.
My own personal motivation on why I attend the event, regardless of how big it has become or the changing politics, is that no where else do I see such new imagery and other artists challenging the boundaries of art. I bring my own image, my art car "Oh My God!" every year and recently I wore my "Flash Suit" in the fashion show which is how I participate. Bottom line though, I love the new images and the fresh art and that's why I go.
