Outer-space and Inner-space:
This Mortal Coil and The Mind's Eye. The focus of our installation will be the mortal body and in extension, the immortal soul temporarily housed within it. We will literally define the outer dimensions of festival participants by tracing the outline of their physical bodies on life-sized canvasses, and then we will allow participants to reveal metaphoricallyl their inner dimensions by providing them with the materials to creatively fill in the space of their outlines. We will be facilitators to help individuals discover the expression of his or her true inner selves by way of the starting point of the physical body, the boundary between 'outer space' and 'inner space'. This will be a dynamic process and participants will be encouraged to return over the span of the week to make additions and changes to their forms. Each canvas will be mounted as an individual flag and displayed on a vast field on the open playa.

For a non monitary fee (ie a song and dance, or something of entertainment value to us) you can set up a contract hit on a loved one, enemy, or object of your affection. The contracted "assassination" will vary in severity depending upon a number of factors, but may range from being subject to public humiliation, having to perform bizzare or ludicrous antics and we are always open to any idea that would otherwise be considered "unusual" punishment. You will not know how or when we will come, and all "assassinations" are surprise attacks. ** This is for entertainment only, and we will not bring unwanted harm or discomfort to anyone who is "marked" for "assasination". ** Come see us!

Sun Valley DMX
(No, not Sun Valley Idaho or some other weak ass town.)
We at Sun Valley DMX have no plan, no objective no guiding principals that distinguish our camp from other mindless camps. However, we are familiar. Like your home town that banned you for life, or the gently embrace of your Mom, who thinks you're a lazy, disrespectful waste of good genes. Think of us as home... Your home (until you piss us off and we throw your worthless ass out into the street). A place to come home to, a place of safety, a place you'd better love, or we'll hunt you down and gut you like a fish. Sounds nice doesn't it? Welcome home. (Bartering available)

The Temple of the Masks
Like glittering jewels cast upon the desert sands, this mysterious caravan of mask-makers snakes across the barren wastes, carrying strange cargo and, some say, the withered husks of their dead. See their bizarre reliquaries with your own eyes in the secret meeting place of this curious and ancient cult. Renew yourself in their luxurious sanctuary, make a mask, and discover hidden aspects of yourself long imprisoned by your conscious mind. As you fall under the spell of this pleasurable form of adornment, you will be transformed from a weary, dusty playa dweller into a thing of comeliness. Partake in the portentous rites of this weird tribe, and become a full-fledged devil-dancer by donning your sacred mask and purifying your soul.
