POWERED BY PEOPLE , VIA PEDALING A HALF DOZEN OR SO STATIONARY BIKES THAT GENERATED ELECTRICITY, THESE MONKEYS WOULD SPIN AROUND THE LARGE CAROUSEL . AT NIGHT THEY HAD STROBE LIGHTS POINTED ON THEM (ALSO PEOPLE POWERED) THAT MADE THE MONKEYS APPEAR TO BE SWINGING FROM BRANCH TO BRANCH WHILE THE SNAKES ABOVE LOOKED TO BE CRAWLING DOWN THE BRANCH AFTER EACH ONE OF THE MONKEYS. THE STILL PHOTO DOES NOT CAPTURE THE BEAUTY AND INTERESTING DESIGN OF THIS LARGE ART PROJECT. THE ARTIST, AS WITH ALL OTHER ARTISTs AT THE EVENT, RECEIVED NO MONETARY GAIN FOR ALL OF THE WORK AND MATERIAL REQUIRED TO TRANSPORT AND ERECT THEIR ART WORK.
IMAGINE DESIGNING AND GETTING THE NEEDED MATERIALS TOGETHER AND THEN TRANSPORTING THE ENTIRE THING HUNDREDS OF MILES TO THE MIDDLE OF THE REMOTE NEVADA DESERT WHERE YOU WOULD THEN ASSEMBLE THE THOUSANDS OF PARTS-SCREWS, BOLTS AND IRON WORK. ALL FOR THE ENTERTAINMENT OF STRANGERS WHO WILL THEN RIDE THE HECK OUT OF YOUR ENERGY PRODUCING BIKES ALL DAY AND NIGHT. YOU THEN GET TO TAKE IT ALL DOWN AND PACK IT HOME WHERE IT WILL WAIT IN YOUR GARAGE UNTIL NEXT YEARS FESTIVAL.
