Burning Man 2014 Installations, Part Two

It’s taken as a given that it is impossible, or at least highly impractical, to see everything at Burning Man. Short of super sonic Segways, or maybe a time machine, we’re limited by the physical constraints of our city, the temporal window of temporary community, and lest we forget, the physical and mental energy to actually go out into the dust and experience what may come.

I always feel like it’s over too soon, and that I missed so much. But in the long run, I remind myself that those feelings aren’t so much of a reason to be sad, but rather to be excited about coming back.

    The Couch Armada team is looking for a long term home for Chassie (the mobile fucking couch pictured above). This couch is fully functional and performed way better than expected on playa. We’re looking for a spot in the Seattle area for this couch to be parked, rather than to be stored. We want to find someone with a garage that this beauty can roll in and out of. We are looking for someone in the Seattle area who has this sort of space available and is excited about this project. The obvious privileges are included…

    Thanks for taking such awesome pictures Michael!
    I was super stoked to see you at the Mt. Infinity burn–that picture is certainly the best picture of the couch we have.
