VDF 2.0

Virtual del Fuego 2.0
Memorial Day Weekend 2021
Fri. May 28, 2021 6pm eastern - Mon. May 31, 2021 3pm eastern


VDF is a FREE sanctioned Burning Man Regional (except... the "region" is anywhere you can log into a free Jitsi link) with a Burner-built website... You can see and share all sorts of things: interactive art, dance parties, workshops, games, dramatic reenactments of events from burns past, virtual tours of "Portapotties of the Rich and Famous"... 


And there are ART GRANTS -- yeah, even though it's a free online event that you don't need tickets to join.

Daniel the Dark, First of His Name, Liege-Lord of the Weirdlands...

What's everyone else been doing while sheltering-in-place? We might have watched a few episodes of "Knightfall"... and then a lot of other TV while not looking at the screen the whole time.

Dan also created a device for winding steel wire into a spiral so he could then snip it into identical links. This chainmail coif is composed of approximately 5,500 links, made from ~ 450 feet of wire.

12 Things of Bourgeoismas (Extinctual Retrospectivism)

EFAC 2020

I had an idea to do this post on December 25th to commemorate the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Louise Bourgeois (above), but somehow sheltering in place & being unemployed keeps me so busy?! But here it is, the cusp of a clean calendar, and here are some of the many Things that we at the Extinct Flightless Arts Collective contrived to create in 02020...

Be Alone With Art

DCAC is still taking appointments for 1 to 5 people at a time (quarantine-buddies, masks required) to visit the Wallmountables 2020 and NanoGallery shows. Wallmountables ends Oct. 18th -- your last chance to see this chunk of rust (with bird's nest, rose, and safety glass), since evidently it has been sold! Hurrah for little red dots!

Worry Less -- Camp S'more!

Some of the wonderful Burner folks behind Virtual del Fuego came together this August for a small, COVID-sensitive outdoor party called Worry Less -- Camp S'more! I interviewed Diana Smiles and Scruffy Rob to find out how it went.
