Project on the Playa:
We're buildin' Art!! At this year's Burning Man, themed The Floating World, Travis Ortiz (and friends) will construct a poetic installation called Linguistic Islands featured on the main art walk between Center Camp and The Man. Linguistic Islands are an archipelago of five fiberglass islands illuminated from within with slowly pulsating lights revealing poetry upon their surfaces. The islands will call to wandering travelers across the open playa inviting them to explore and experience the magic of Linguistic Islands.

The Burning Man organization has encouraged the project with initial seed funding; however, it's not enough to make the project a reality. We need YOU, our community, to come together at this event in support of Linguistic Islands and community art to help us raise the remaining funds needed to construct the project. For playa patrons desiring and able to make a larger contribution to the building of Linguistic Islands, join the "Adopt an Island Program" with donations of $100.00 or more and have your name forever attached to an island. (Because Linguistic Islands will not be burned, this art will live beyond the playa.) More info >>

A $20.00 donation gets you in the door to one of the coolest new San Francisco Mission community spaces, provides one entry into the raffle, and gets you as much massage, food, and booty shakin' as you desire. Space is limited, so please purchase advance tickets.

Tickets are available for online purchase through Pay Pal

Or at Brain Drops
1871 Hayes St. @ Ashbury in San Francisco

Come get groovy with art! Come, if even for just an hour or so.

Hope to see you there!
Thanks for supporting Linguistic Islands this year at Burning Man!
Travis Ortiz
