Our Burning Man 2009 Art Project was successful! I believe we (Bobbie, Deena, Glenn, Katie and Kurt) all enjoyed working together; we each seemed to play to our strengths. In 2011, we'll add a little more to Opa and take her to Burning Man a second time! Then we'll be ready for our new project in 2012.
For those of you interested in what we did, please review our original Burning Man Project Proposal web site.
Here we are at the 2011 Maker Faire in San Mateo: http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2011/08/opabinia-regalis-a-pyrotechnical-precambrian-pedal-car.html
Here are photos with Opa at the 2010 East Bay Mini Maker Faire (on a rainy day and due to the small space Opa was stationary).
Here's a picture of Opa on the playa at Burning Man 2009:
Here are a few additional pictures and videos.
Here's Opa at her final performance at the 2nd annual Mad Hatter Parade in Vallejo, CA
Pictures of the work-in-progress and Opa at Burning Man will be uploaded here eventually. (If anyone has pictures of Opa on the playa, please send them to us or upload them to the Burning Man Image Gallery!)
