Coyote said the other day that Black Rock City is the biggest art project on the playa, and we totally agree.

Sometimes the things that are strewn around the playa in the course of building the city look like installations.

Here are a few sights from around the playa over the past several days:

    DPW was always one of my favorite “installations” on the playa. Ya don’t normally get to see such mighty machines up close. A true industrial spectacle!
