It was exciting to see that this year there will be 6 invited artists, with a wide breadth of backgrounds.

Trill Zapatero calls herself “an artist , maybe”. I have seee her art and, yes, she IS an artist, and I am looking forward to her creation.
Rag Rand says his style translates concepts into humorous, thought provoking art which enables his client’s messages to be memorable and effective. It will be interesting to see what he presents to us on the playa.
Rebeca Bashly says of herself, “Serbian artist, almost 4 years in SL. Every single sculpt and texture I use in my work is created by me alone. My most significant work is “SnowCrash” sim on UTSA Artspace, which is a team work with Igor Ballyhoo.”
Starlash Sweetwater tells us to date she has had showings of her 2D work at several galleries and has recently started to bring her stories to life with machinima. Using second life as inspiration she is constantly trying new techniques and mediums to evolve her work.
Oberon Onmura has a unique approach to using opposing forces on physical objects that has attracted the attention of blog sites, SL and RL galleries and publications. He has recently become interested in the use of scripted agents (i.e. bots) as artmaking material.
It will be so interesting to see what each artist will place on the playa for all of us to enjoy. I can't wait! Remember if you wish to volunteer or contribute in any way visit Deep Hole: Burning Man- Deep Hole (230, 72, 24)Gemma Cleanslate
