Do you like Burning Man? Do you like shiny lights? Do you like play-doh? We thought so. This year, the NY Regional is combining all three, for the ultimate Midway interactive art trifecta at Burning Man.

Each visitor to the Mad Sorcerer's Workshop creates one tiny clay creature and adds it to the world growing on the shelves of an infinity box. Visitors are encouraged to interact with each other, to cooperate, and to let their imaginations roam, molding polka dot trees, green cows, castles, dinosaurs, and UFOs. Make a blue fish, your friend can make a red bird, the next person will make a small man, together we'll have the beginnings of a whole new world, with the reflections of the infinity box making it look like there's whole schools and flocks of strange creatures and a crowd of people, all interacting.

You get to be the Mad Sorcerer, create whole worlds in your crystal ball, just to mess with them. You get to say how creative and lovely your pet world will be. There's no skill required, no creation too boring or too creative. A red, and yellow and purple castle? Yes! A small brown snake? Yes! Every play-doh creature has a place with us.

Open 24-7, for kids of all ages, shade, play-doh and infinity box worlds provided.
