burning man updates

After a week without any signal from the Burning Man crew, we just received these images from the desert of nevada. A proof that the delicate electronics of the etoy.SARCOPHAGUS braved the adverse conditions including sandstorms and tremendous heat. According to the report from a crew member, the whole tank could even be powered up by only one generator. We are glad about these good news and proud of our crew for mastering the Burning Man adventure:

Arrival of the tank in the desert, followed by a whiteout.

being the only shade around, the tank is quite popular during day time (when it's closed).

at the base camp.

Burning man is full of nerds ("Best piece of contemporary art ever seen at burning man", "Intellectually most rigorous piece on the playa"). On the other hand, tripping Burning Men greatly enjoy the tank as well. agent.ZAI takes a break outside.

Hi there,
Just wanted to let you know I spent a good amount of time learning about Mission Eternity on the Playa, and I was fascinated!
I have a great pix of me in the tank, but I cannot upload anything with the email you have provided, it does not allow attachments :*(

Thank you and keep up the great work!
