Since 2005, I have been collaborating with photographer Scott London (Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, GQ, Elle Décor, Marie Claire, Outside, Sierra and National Geographic Traveler) , as a scholar. He has provided many images for my book on the Burning Man festival. Last year, he documented my performance at Burning Man and featured my work in Rolling Stone. I designed and constructed three costumes inspired by the colors of the desert--sage green, agave blue, and desert rose. We spent a day at the Painted Desert/Petrified Forest to do a photoshot. These images were then projected via hand-held projectors by the roaming performers on all the surfaces of the Mesa Art Center bringing the beauty of the desert back into the urban environment.
