Still saving money to pay to get the slides scanned and put on KodakCD at Pacific Color. This isn't going to be cheap I am finding. A buck a pop for over 100. There are about 400 I want to get. And since I work on deadline driven projects at my job, I haven't added the content I so desperately need to add. The Gallery Temporal is online at www.blarg.net/~bfly/GalleryTemp.
For now, all I have to offer is a essay and photos describing Burning Man 1997 and what happened in Black Rock City. For those of you who may have never heard of Burning Man, it is a 5 day festival which is North America's premiere showcase for emerging artistic talent. Or perhaps it is a Rainbow festival for bad people. It is both and it is neither. It is the Internet made physical. Then again maybe it's not. Paul Trebach described it as the luscious, crusty underbelly of the San Francisco art scene. Go take a look at my story and see for yourself. Or go directly to the Burning Man site if you don't want my particular slant and would rather hear the "official" slant. Either way you are likely to come across a photo of someone naked (gasp!). Unless you are browsing with Lynx of course...
This "Den of Syn" page will be an attempt to mine and refine as much info as possible on subjects including but not limited to: Synaesthesia, Syncopation, Synchronicity, and Synergy. That's not too ambitious, is it?
A second essay and photo travelogue on my experiences at Dias de los Muertos in the towns of Oaxaca and Mitla, Mexico should be posted soon-ish. Plus there will be other news and advice for that trip to the Mayan ruins of Palenque, Yaxchilan, Bonampak and Tikal that you might be planning. I will also be putting together a special feature on what to do in Palenque, Chiapas, Mexico when the taxi drivers close off the highway out of town and what agencia de viaja es malo! [hint: Agencia Tonina]
Check back again in soon. Most of the work I am creating is going on the graphics site. In fact, I am guilty of ignoring this page. So sorry.
The journey is just beginning...
For now, go listen toJoe Frank's Somewhere Out There at KCRW's cool website. That should keep you busy for awhile. Or stay here at SCN and you are sure to find *something* interesting I should hope.
