Missoni, N.Y. Artist Eric N. Mack Prep for This Year’s Desert X

Missoni and artist Eric N. Mack are gearing up for Saturday’s opening of the second installment of Desert X.
All are welcome at the complimentary contemporary art exhibition in Palm Springs, which is being curated by artistic director Neville Wakefield and this year’s co-curators Amanda Hunt and Matthew Schum. The desert landscape will provide the backdrop for 19 site-specific installations and performances by Mack and other artists like Sterling Ruby, Superflex, Iván Argote, Mary Kelly, Steve Badgett and Chris Taylor, Nancy Baker Cahill, Cecilia Bengolea, Pia Camil, John Gerrard, Julian Hoeber and Jenny Holzer, Iman Issa, Mary Kelly and Postcommodity, among others. Ruby is widely known as a favorite of Raf Simons, who tapped him to design an installation for the Calvin Klein Madison Avenue store. This year’s edition of Desert X will run through April 21.
By joining forces with the New York-based Mack, Missoni is providing the artist with colorful and patterned fabrics that have been selected by creative director for his artistic contribution. Mack will stage his site-specific sculpture in a car garage housed in an old gas station overlooking the Salton Sea. Missoni had to be extra generous with the yards of silks, knits and tulles need to

Strangely Compelling ‘Shybot’ Roams California Desert Avoiding Humans

A lone little robot roamed California’s Sonoran Desert for a week this month. Its only mission: Avoiding humans.

“Shybot” was part of a weirdly mesmerizing art project in early March. It was designed by the Italian artist Norma Jeane and engineers for the Desert X Biennial, which uses the “canvas” of the Coachella Valley in southern California and its desert landscape. It’s one of several projects ongoing through the end of April.

The rover’s camera streamed its experiences back to The Lab art gallery in San Francisco, which presented the work in collaboration with the city’s Italian Cultural Institute. The robot had no practical purpose. It traveled wherever it rolled, though assiduously avoided humans, and was forced to maneuver around obstacles too large for it to climb. Drones tracked its progress from the air — which Shybot at times appeared not to appreciate.

If you’re wondering what the point of the project was, whether it’s a comment on machine versus nature, or a study of a land without humans, the artist tried to clarify in a statement, calling it a “fantasy of the desert sublime.”

“The machine is let loose in the landscape, free of the human determinism that thus far framed its existence,” Jeane said. “And we, in turn, are free to imagine a world liberated from the indeterminacy of us.”

Desert Trip Tickets Are $399 For the Weekend: Is It Worth the Cost?

2016-05-03-1462307724-1711500-paul_mccartney_at_desert_trip.jpg

By Laura Woods, Contributor

Desert Trip, the classic rock version of Coachella, is coming to Indio, Calif. Oct. 7-9. Organized by the people behind Coachella, many of classic rock’s biggest names are slated to perform at the event, including Paul McCartney and the Rolling Stones.

Desert Trip tickets aren’t cheap, carrying a general admission price tag of $ 399 for the weekend. Find out who’s performing and if you can afford to attend.

Visit GOBankingRates for the latest finance news and shopping deals >>>

Desert Trip Lineup

A classic rock fan’s dream come true, Desert Trip offers the chance to see some of the most iconic musical acts perform live.

Nicknamed Oldchella and Woodstock 2016, Desert Trip will feature the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan Friday night, followed by Paul McCartney and Neil Young on Saturday. Roger Waters and The Who will close out the event Sunday.

Are Desert Trip Tickets Worth the Cost?

Weekend passes for Desert Trip are selling for the same as Coachella: $ 399. Desert Trip does offer one-day passes for $ 199, however, giving you the chance to save while seeing some of your favorite artists.

Other tiers of Desert Trip passes for the weekend include reserved floor passes, costing $ 699, $ 999 and $ 1,599. Grandstand tickets cost $ 999 and $ 1,599, and standing pit passes are going for $ 1,599.

The exorbitant cost to attend Desert Trip is likely caused by the immense performance fees paid to each of the headlining acts, which is rumored to be as much as $ 7 million each, reported entertainment news hub Ultimate Classic Rock.

Cost to Watch Paul McCartney and Others Live

If you’re only interested in seeing one or two of the acts at Desert Trip, you might be able to save money by watching your favorite artists separately.

Tickets for the Paul McCartney tour “One On One” average just $ 161.77, according to Pollstar, which tracks the cost of concert tickets. Similarly, tickets to see the Rolling Stones live have averaged $ 164.72 over the past 12 months, with tickets to see Neil Young averaging $ 70.78.

Of course, attending Desert Trip is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, so if you’re into all of the headliners and don’t mind paying top dollar to attend, the festival is sure to leave you with lasting memories. Desert Trip tickets go on sale May 9 at 10 a.m. PST at DesertTrip.com.

Kane, is specifically designed for the hiker, camper, hunter, or survivalist who is in need of a concise, no-nonsense booklet instructing on the collection, preparation, and utilization of 50 regional edible plants. Essentially: find it; gather it; and eat it. 77 color photos, state-by-state location maps, common and scientific names, preparation and toxicity issues, and concise medicinal and related ethnobotanical uses serve as accents making Sonoran Desert Food Plants a must-have desert-rat resource. Readers will find Kane’s approach to the material refreshingly objective and on-target: no philosophical ramblings and epicurean cookbook recipes; just stripped-down, sensical information on how to best utilize the most common wild desert food plants of the Sonoran region.

There’s A Tiny Pool In The Middle Of The Mojave Desert, And You Can Swim In It

Somewhere in the depths of California’s Mojave Desert, in a location identifiable only by guarded GPS coordinates, is a tiny pool.

This pool, imagined by Austrian artist Alfredo Barsuglia, is open to the public. All one needs to do is inquire at the MAK Center for Art and Architecture in West Hollywood about the longitude and latitude of the artificial oasis, plopped down in the middle of the arid spaces.

pool

But don’t forget to ask for the key, as well.

It will open the pool’s cover, unveiling the four-foot by 12-foot body of water for just 24 hours to any one person or small party at a time. Painted white to stand out against the sprawling sand that fills the deserted horizon, the minuscule bit of paradise stands as a Minimalist sculpture abandoned by its maker so that adventurous nomads can experience a moment of pure, tranquil bliss.

Barsuglia’s contemporary sanctuary is titled “Social Pool,” not so subtly hinting at the piece’s idealistic undertones. The trek through the roadless region is as much a part of the retreat, as you journey into the remote void to relax inside an art project. No doubt the artist has big expectations for how you’ll bide your time. Like what it means for an artist to hide gallons of water in a drought-riddled state?

pool

Yet the word “social” hints at the transformation the pool will undergo once visitors flock to the luxurious pitstop. The obviously absurd creation replicates a symbol of excess, and will no doubt spark an entirely exclusive Instagram hashtag. Barsuglia recognizes that the “inconvenience” of getting there juxtaposes nicely with the expected escape of being there. Like all bold (semi-)public artwork, “Social Pool” is subversive, goading its waders to ponder broader issues.

In this case, the commercialization of art.

pool

“The work embodies the massive socio-economic changes that have taken place in the last forty years,” a description of the project reads. “It thus understands itself as the product of an economy in which privacy and immateriality have been fully commodified… For many a consumer, art is expected to operate according to the principles of the service economy rather than following humanist ideals of intellectual or moral stimulus and education.”

Whether the dramatic appearance of the pool will outweigh the artist’s intentions, or the ridiculous idea of a desert pool will overshadow any deep thoughts on the consumer economy, is yet to be seen. We can only speculate until we get a chance to wield the sacred key.

pool

“Will it make viewers, who’ve had to hike through the desert clutching a gallon of water, more enlightened about the way we manage humanity’s most precious resource?” LA Times’ Carolina A. Miranda asked. “I sure hope so, especially the city managers who insist on planting grass all over a region it wasn’t meant to grow.

In case you’re planning your trip to “Social Pool” already, note that you’ll need to bring a gallon of water per person to replenish the pool. And if you’re an Easter Coaster lamenting your inability to visit “Social Pool,” check out New York’s take on pools of the future here.

Desert Dogs


Photos by Russ Bryant, Text by Amy Goodpaster StrebeAs America struggles to “win the peace” in Iraq, Desert Dogs: The Marines of Operation Iraqi Freedom highlights the human side of war, the day-in-the-life of U.S. Marines stationed in that volatile region. Dramatic, harrowing, and simply unbelievable images of the marines of Operation Iraqi Freedom, personal letters, and stories of coping with the pain of separation from their families and the horrors of war. Russ Bryant’s photography chronicles every aspect of the daily lives of these marines: lazy camels amble by a cargo drop; blinding sandstorms threaten to blow away tents, supplies, and marines alike; Scud missile attack sirens send marines scuttling to their bunkers; sniper fire crisscrosses marine convoys moving into Iraq; tanks and bombs topple the portraits of Saddam that seem to loom over every Iraqi village; shelled-out tanks, armored vehicles, and even busses litter the road on the way to Baghdad; medical personnel attend to fallen marines and prisoners alike; the occasional silent interlude allows time for prayer and remembrance.
