Raygun Gothic Rocketship Orbits Black Rock System–Returns to Oakland

Posted on Sep 16, 2009


After a successful tour of the nether reaches of the Black Rock System, the Raygun Gothic Rocketship has landed in west Oakland.  I feel great after bio-decontamination and a walk in the woods, but I still have a hankering for space food.  Yum.

Many thanks to the brave and dedicated crew!  They said it couldn’t be done.  They said it would end in fiery disaster.  It did.  Fantastic!

Here are a few shots I snapped of the rocket installation at Black Rock City, in which I was fortunate enough to include two of my rayguns and two bronze pennants.  I can’t say what an honor it was to be a small part of such a huge handmade project, and what a privilege it is to count among it’s makers many close friends.  This is what happens when diverse talents are allowed to cooperate to the mutual good.

If you would like to see my rayguns in person, they are on display at the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton MA until November 8th, 2009.
