Burning Man without the dust and heat

One of the big takeaways of the Burning Man experience is that life doesn’t only have to be cool and fun and creative and art-filled in one spot in the desert one week a year. Burners across the country organize other events, smaller in scope but similar in spirit, year-round. The burners of Seattle, reputed to have the largest community of regular attendees outside the Bay Area, is planning a traditional post-BM party, or “Seacompression,” in Magnuson Park's Hangar #30—a sort of ceremonial easing-back-into-the-real-world, a chance for those who went to show off their art and costumes again and for those who missed it to get a taste of what went on down there. Tonight’s bash, according to a floor plan on the Ignition Northwest Web site, will include a parking place for art cars, “catapult art,” a “mutant sofa,” a “grapestem sculpture,” and the “Temple Whores Massage Table and Chill Space.”
