This living sculpture of Chiron was at Burning Man in 2011. We would pull one of four ropes around the huge wheel (this skeleton is larger than you are). Pulling the ropes made the wheel spin faster and faster. The spinning would power an electric generator… and, when it was going fast enough, a strobe light would turn on, so that you would see ONLY ONE of the skeletons. It was Chiron, and he was alive, so alive and in this world that you could look him in the face as he shoved his oar into the waters and rowed ever onward. INCREDIBLE!!!!
friendly to strangers; hospitable.
