16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
The Art of Burning Man at the Renwick

The photograph captures the uniqueness of the exhibit and the artwork’s effective use of light. Through the use of light, the artwork extends beyond just the sculpture to include the room’s walls, ceiling, and floor as part of the work. Through shadows, the entire room becomes the sculpture, and the spectacular is also pulled in to the artwork. Instead of just viewing the exhibit, she stands as one with it.
