Hello from Berkeley!

With the burn a little over a month away, we're hard at work in the warehouse. As of now, we're done oiling, finishing, and sizing up the legs. Some of the outstanding items are: putting extrusions for Chilopod's LED strip, connecting the legs to th...

Hi, friends! It's been a while since we've last talked, and boy, do we have things to share. So, let's dive right in!

Desert Arts Preview

For artists and spectators alike, the Desert Arts Preview is one of the coolest Burning Man events around. Hosted by the org, it's a...

Do you know of that feeling when you put a lot of effort, sweat, tears, and blood into something, just to have it be pulled off 110% better than you could've ever imagined, ultimately leaving with you a nice little hangover of positivity and good vibes after the event...

Happy Thursday, Chilofans! It's a cloudy day in the Bay Area, which seems poignant with the recent passing of Larry. There's a great deal of gratitude that each of us owes to the man, because without him, Burning Man would not be this thing that it is, most of us would...

Hey, Chilofans! It's a beautiful Thursday morning here in Berkeley, and we're basking in the afterglow of our first fundraising brunch event at The Revival Bar + Kitchen in Berkeley. We had a great turnaround, an amazing presentation by Lawrence, and our first active d...

Another Sunday in the books, and another successful meeting as well. We received some new folks to the team (yay!), and welcomed back some old ones.

Hey there, Chilopod fans! The process has begun! We had our first meeting at the warehouse in Berkeley this past Sunday. We dove right in, and ended up sketching the outline of the structure.

As you can see, it’s coming along. We had been having weekly check-ins, but se...

I had hoped that I could start to build my project team while on playa 2017. But a set of circumstances made that difficult. Daytime heat was intense, and I didn't venture out to the art during the day as much as in 2016. My sketches were on my phone, which I didn't fe...

I had made some preliminary concept sketches over the past 10 months, but I felt that I needed to learn SketchUp in order to design my Burning Man Project. I did learn SketchUp but found that it wasn't the tool I needed for conceptual design. But during a family road t...
