⚙️🦑Giant Mechanical Squid 🦑⚙️
Mechateuthis is a mechanical giant squid named after “megateuthis”, the largest squid species. It’s arms, tentacles, beak, eye pupils, and mantle fins are driven by 8 hand cranks. Each crank controls a different motion. This imaginative use of steel was made possible by mechanical artist Barry Crawford with the help of a grant from Burning Man Arts & a successful GoFundMe campaign. Barry’s mechanical squid premiered at Burning Man 2015 and now part of Bay Area Maker Faire 2016. What do you think Nation??? 🥇❤️⚙️

Over 15 Years’ Worth Of Dazzling Art At Burning Man

Photographer NK Guy has been capturing the artworks built for Burning Man on camera for over a decade, recently anthologized his findings in a new book, Art of Burning Man. In it, he pays poetic homage to the way the sun rises over the event’s central sculpture in the mornings, and the glow of LED lights and lasers after sunset. He emphasizes the structures’ ability to bring people together from all walks of life – accomplishing, according to Guy, the feelings of connection that art should achieve, but so often fails to inside of a museum.

If I didn’t have a natural curiosity for things that scare me, I wouldn’t be here.
