Burning Man 2007 is just around the corner, so for this August Dorkbot meeting, we will focus on the art of Burning Man!  First we will hear from Kay Morrison, President of Ignition Northwest (, the regional burner-based arts and community group in the Northwest.  Then you will see several Burning Man projects that will particularly appeal to geek and artist in you! 

  • Simon Winder will talk about the dog dish art car, a wonder of microcontrolled steering.

• Josh Lind will talk about his art car project for this year, the radioator.  The Radioator is a mobile radio/audio broadcast cart, with giant headphones, for silent parties.  ( )

• Mars Saxman will show us how to make laser fingers.  Lasers!

• Buphalo will show us how to incorporate fire into art, which he has done for the Fire Pod (which appeared at Burning Man, Bumpershoot, and Coachella) in previous years and for the hammerstrike for this year!

• Pope Phabulous will explain how to use Electroluminescent Wire (EL wire) in art and costumes!

Doors will be open at 7:00 if you want to show up early, drink a beer, and chat. 

If you want to talk about your latest creation or announce an upcoming event during our "open dork" session, let me know!  If you'd like to speak or perform at, or curate, a future Dorkbot, talk to me or email me at .
