Come meet the artist AND create next year's Ploem.

Ploetry is inspirational prose cut out from planks of wood, hung from a 5-sided city-shaped tower, with color-changing backlight and custom seating.

The first entry, "I Am But Wood", is a poem written from the point of view of the Man. Next year, we want to add more Ploems, scattered as Easter Eggs around the Playa. Write a ploem, build an installation, or both - we'll show you how. This is a workshop - all building is done off playa. But take your inspiration to write your Ploem while in Black Rock City!
