We got back from Kiwiburn on Monday and I've been mulling over what came out of it this year for me and I realised that I really enjoy making performance art. Random performance art, the kind that happens without the expectation of an audience. Only a few people saw me brushing the teeth of the Effigy with our giant Brushy Brushy toothbrush every morning, but those who did were randomly entertained without prior expectation.



My art was difficult to photograph and I kind of like that there are very few pictures of it around because it means you had to be there to see it. Tangle and Dangle did a set at Rockstar Dreams, and about 20 people gathered and watched it, and walked away laughing and going "Random!"

I really like being part of making that stuff happen. I like it more than the type of performance that has a group of people waiting to be entertained, somehow. I'd like to do more of it.

Immediacy. That's what I've brought home from Kiwiburn, I think.

So is this festival related to the Burning man festival? At least it sounds and looks like it. Intriguing!!

Yes! It's NZ's regional Burning Man event (although we like to think of Burning Man as 'American Kiwiburn').

If you're interested..

We don't. But we do have a climate where heather thrives in some areas, particularly in the warmer north. There's mostly pink heather, and a rarer white heather. I've seen none down here (we have broom instead) but it seems to do well on roadsides and anywhere with a sandy sort of soil.

Thanks for the info! I've always wanted to see legit heather growing somewhere. It isn't near cold enough for any authentic heather to grow here but we do have Mexican heather which is not at all related, but looks vaguely similar. My mom always made sure to keep some growing around the house for me because I found it very thrilling as a child and I loved showing it off to my friends.
