MUTANT VEHICLES - ART ON WHEELS AT BURNING MAN
ABOUT THE BOOK
A repeatedly celebrated highlight among the mutant vehicles at Burning Man is the "El Pulpo Mecanico". Built by Duane Flatmo and Jerry Kunkel, this rolling work of art can control its arms individually and spit fire with them, creating a spectacular choreography.
Shelly the Crab designed by Dustin Hoffman. Shelly's leg assembly was designed by a Dutch artist named Theo Jansen. My motivation for her was to create a vehicle which was slightly more manageable in size, but more intricate and elaborate. Shelly was fabricated entirely from scratch and has no "base vehicle." It took Dustin 3 years, with ~1 year of focused work during that time to build Shelly.
