The party was on Saturday, but I went up Friday morning with my wife, Jamie (from Headspace Studios), and Rick (another great visual artist). Our goal (and Jamie's brainchild) was to make a giant, 4 sided pyramid out of bamboo and hang a camera under it, to create the visuals that would display on the rocks above the DJ. But, after a LONG morning getting up there, getting stuck in sand on the beach, and getting totally drunk...we dubbed ourselves - Team - "Hurry the Fuck Up"...that was basically the story of our weekend! The first night...after barely getting anything done for the art installation....we sat back, and watched this amazing sunset! -
Anyway, day 2 rolled around, and we finally got the car pulled out of the sand. We slowly, very slowly....started to get our shit together. We got some super long bamboo poles...and started to construct the pyramid. In the end, it all looked like this -
And this thing was a monster...bigger than we expected, and Jamie was climbing all over it all night! I even saw a girl dancing and hanging off it.
After a good long weekend of music, visuals, dancing, drinking, swimming, relaxing....we tore the bamboo down in a fraction of the time it took to set up....and took the long road home. Along the way we stopped at a farm and ate delicious steaks (all of Team Hurry the Fuck Up)...and then slowly cruised home....and all the while eating too much ice cream. It was a great weekend...and one I hope to do again!
