This episode of THE INTERSECTION AT BURNING MAN begins where art meets motion, and making meets bureaucracy. The event hasn’t officially started but there’s plenty going on: Camps are being set up, art is being erected and a family of first-time art car makers is hustling to finish up and try to pass the inspection. But they can’t actually drive it until it’s approved by the DMV. As in the Department of Mutant Vehicles.
THE INTERSECTION looks at changing cities through physical intersections. This time we’re doing something different: The city is temporary and the intersections are conceptual. We’re heading to a remote corner of Nevada for Burning Man.
THE INTERSECTION is a co-production of David Boyer and KALW.
Jonathan Davis is the associate producer. This episode was edited by Ben Trefny. And engineered for your listening pleasure by Gabe Grabin with music from Erik Pearson and Blue Dot Sessions.
