Awesome Earth People
Big Cities and Little 'uns
Here's a collection of cars from our camp, Camp Walter at Burning Man . We're in line here for the DMV (Department of Mutant Vehicles). My friend George says there are over 800 cars that go through the DMV every year to get clearance to drive around the playa. There's a huge history behind each of the vehicles in this photo. Much of it centers around the big VW bus, Walter, as a material instantiation symbolizing the concept of second chances.
I assume there are a few Game of Thrones fans in the audience? I visited this place in Morocco several years before they started making the show. I was actually reading the books at the time and thinking, wow, this would make an awesome set for Daenerys to recruit her army. So you can imagine my surprise when I saw it appear in the actual series. Also, some of you may remember this place from the Gladiator movie too. I think it's where Russell Crowe was taken away to in the beginning of the movie.
