Dust storms are an integral part of the Burning Man experience. That’s not necessarily a good thing, but it’s something you learn to deal with for the sake of art.
We drove out to this caduceus sculpture with photographer Tracy Bugni, and had just started shooting when the dust hit. Fearing for our eyes, our lungs and her camera, we retreated to a safer spot…
The Cafe, where a selection of artists create paintings on plywood walls for temporary display. I don’t know who painted this (don’t know who built the caduceus, either), but it made a great backdrop.
For this outfit, I’m wearing that little black straw hat again. What can I say, I love it. I’ve got my awesome KISS belt on again, too. The skirt, however, is totally original. It’s a hand-woven piece by Lynne Bruning, which she lent me for this ensemble.
As I run out of clothes, I’ve been borrowing from friends and designers, of which there are many out here. People are generous in this community, and there are some beautiful pieces to come (once I wash the dust off my little black dress!)
