Friday was a setup day, & I got a chance to peek at some of the exhibits, such as this ethereal, illuminated forest.
I'm always awed by the huge mobile sculptures. This is as close to Burning Man as I'll ever come.
On closer inspection, this dragon turns out to be made of hardware more commonly used in kitchens.
This whimsical submarine looks convincing both inside & out.
An aisle over from where we were setting up, several people were busy putting finishing touches on this detailed landscape, ...
... composed of intricate objects made entirely from masking tape.
At the end of the afternoon, massive mounds of paella were served to the makers, courtesy of Gerard's Paella. Mr. Jefferies & I dallied too long during setup, though, & were disappointed to discover that the beer ran out before we got there.
