In 2008 I did exactly this - got on my laptop here in London England - posted to help an art project in the forum - and joined an AMAZING TEAM and helped to build this in 2 weeks on site before the burn opened its doors.
Now I am doing it again!
I am coming to the burn - i dont YET have a ticket - I will be somewhere in Cali a few weeks prior - and am offering my services as a creator (skill list below) and general team member for the ultimate joy of building a great project in one of my favorite places on Earth.
I blindly followed an amazing crew out into the desert who housed me, fed me, helped me, partied with me and showed me the way to Burn - and in return i sweated blood and worked like the devil for an incredible project.
this is my website: http://www.vahakn.co.uk
Design (all kinds)
All power tools
Painting - both house and Art
Sewing (machine and finger)
Scissor lift operator (will learn to drive anything / work any machine)
Snow / Skateboarding
Good listener - learner - builder - laugher - joker - sleeper - partier.
And even better - theres more than one of me - I have an amazing friend who also would like to come with - its not a condition - but I wouldnt offer if I didnt think he was worth your time! Exceptional photographer. good maker / helper - general star in all manners.
So if this interests you - get in touch -
In return I (myself) would expect:
1. To meet you guys a day or so before the festival - help get eveything together - get a ride to the site from SF or RENO or wherever makes sense
2. To get on site a week or so earlier than the festival opens
3. some sort of shelter - or help finding / constructing one /
4. Help towards food - i dont expect to be fed every day all meal paid - but subsidy / group prices etc....
5. A ticket or help towards one.
So if this fits the bill - and youre interested get in touch
oh yes - and this is FOR REAL - not too good to be true
pinch yourself - youre not dreaming
