It’s been a while since I last posted. We are coming up on the anniversary of the Gift Prolific’s Gallery Opening at Burning Man 2012. Burn night 2014 is right around the corner. For many people 2012 was the first that they had heard of the GP. I remember that day so clearly. I was tired, overheated, mourning the loss of my Grandma Clow, but filled with incredible excitement to meet so many people that connected with my project. That day is still one of the greatest days of my entire life.
I am also thinking about Burning Man in general. I am skipping this year. I miss it too. I wanted to share with you a painting that I made for the new Burning Man office this year. It is broken into 52 pieces. One painting for every week of giving in a year. I was working my way through this piece and tracking my gifts, but thing got so busy that I skipped too many weeks to recover. So here is the painting in it’s entirety.
As far as GP goes I have a new idea that might work out. I am thinking about hosting a gift exchange! You would basically send me an email saying that you want to participate. I would take all of the info for each person and redistribute their info and match them up. You then make or buy a cool gift and ship it to that person. They take pictures and post them here on GP. What do you think? Would you like to play along? Talk to you soon.
