This year’s What Where When is based on the art theme of Metropolis. The What Where When is a 96 page booklet with approximately 960 event listings scheduled for the week of Burning Man. The outside cover design portrays both the idealism of living in a thriving, wealthy city partnered with the reality that many urban dwellers live in favelas or shanty-towns. The inside cover uses a photo of stack of rebar as a background, a reference to the many pieces of rebar used in staking and anchoring Black Rock City structures to the desert floor.
This is a collection of individual drawings and full pages from some of my 2009/2010 sketchbooks. Drawing is another way to see an object, to understand what it is I am looking at. Tracing something on paper that I find visually appealing or interesting is like a mediation on that object, the space it occupies and the light that it reflects or absorbs.
