Hey there fellers,
I am finally about to make my long overdue pilgrimage to Burning Man this year. I understand that I must experience Burning Man before I attempt to address it with an art project or installation. However, I feel it would be an injustice to both my contraption-building-nature and this wonderfully creative community to show up having contributed nothing. So like many newcomers out there, I am hoping to offer all that I can towards an existing project.
Here's some of the things I have created to give folks an idea:

Assuming I graduate in the spring, preparation for Burning Man 2010 will become the dominant force in my life. My home is in Chicago, however I may stay in Upstate New York. I might even travel out to the Southwest in mid June. If someone is building something ridiculous in Arkansas I might just end up there.
So I'm looking for leads - people or groups building crazy whimsical contraptions. Anyone have any ideas?
