Tunnel of Time: Ventucky Burning Man Art Installation

August 2, 2009

BM09 Time Tunnel oozeLast night we went over to the Red Barn for John’s Big Birthday Bash and a preview of the Ventucky Burners art installation, a Darwinian Time Tunnel starting with the Big Bang and ending with a slide into the future! BM09 Time Tunnel cave artSM

Each epoch of time was coordinated by small groups of volunteers, mostly locals, with one section by a group in SF. A newbie Burner composed music to correspond with each section creating an audio experience to go along with the visual one, and to transition you from one time to the next. I really enjoyed the beauty, calm and simplicity of the cave art from around the world set on sparkling black velour; the room with the jelly fish and other sea creatures is also a giddy black light experience. The small boy like the bouncing Furbies set amongst blinking LED’s best tied with walking the plank and riding down the slide. BM09 Dora & the cave artSM

They haven’t heard yet where they will be on the map but somewhere on the grid to power the blacklights–I’ll be sure to let you know where so you can see it if you’re one fo the 50,000 going out there this year!BM 09 Time Tunnel altar

Seeing this very cool almost complete collaborative art project inspires me even more to get going with my Burning Man preparations!

Thanks, John, for a great party last night, and for providing the space for folks to meet regularly to plan and build this wonderful addition to everyone’s Playa time! (And thanks also for giving my nephew a much needed bicycle!) Happy Birthday!

    Just heard from Pineapple Helen that the Ventucky Burners camp and the Time Tunnel can be found at 9pm & Adapt; that would be just in from the Esplanade and on the grid to power all the lights.
