Flock Takedown Coachella 2006

Here’s a rough draft timelapse of the takedown of Flock at Coachella 2006. (Music by Cortex Bomb) I’m planning to document the creation of Michael’s next sculpture for Burning Man 2006 and combine it with footage from Flock’s temporary residence in front of City Hall, SF last year, and the Coachella footage to create a documentary of Michael Christian’s art and the migration of the Burning Man Art Festival aesthetic to the Urban experience. Stay tuned!

Consciousness and Quantum Reality – Nick Herbert

OK. Here’s the download. This is where hard science and new-age thinking align to reveal the mental/spiritual quagmire we are in at this moment in time. It appears to me that we are faced with integrating a new paradigm for understanding and acting in the universe (or perhaps I should say multi-verse?)… and I think this interview explains why everything appears so topsy turvy in our world today. I happened upon this book on a houseboat in Sasaulito last night.

I did a photoshoot last week with SF Chronicle Photographer Craig Lee at the Crucible in West Oakland. I had to figure out how to hold a wine glass full of flaming liquid while breathing fire over it, without burning myself or destroying the wine glass! Well I never got hurt, but we shattered two glasses! However we managed to get some good shots in before the fireworks.

Thanks to Joshua David for being my fire-safety on this gig.

Veggie-Oil Truck Panorama

Feb-Mar 2004

Hmmm… quite the maiden voyage for the veggie-oil powered suburban.
Mexico is a very large country. Driving across it took far longer than anticipated. And it certainly didn’t help that right before leaving the vehicle was modified to use vegetable oil as fuel… whew!
