Burning Man – Stuck in Customs

Adventures on the OpenSea

Dipping into NFTs with my Burning Man images has been a fun experience so I’ve selected a handful of my other art, converted into animated content and listed on OpenSea. You’ll find a whole range of options from straight up purchases to auctions and a couple of other twists. For example, if you’ve been considering one of my massive fine art prints for a while then this is a great way to get in on the action, you can bid on one as an NFT and receive the 1.66 x 2.5 meter physical print if you win!

Here is a little preview of one NFT…

All Systems Go!

Today’s big news is that the new NFTs are now live on Makersplace take a look here! As with the previous creations a chunk of the sale goes to the artists and subjects of the images with some also going to charity. I’ve also taken on board feedback from the Foundation experience. This time round the process to get involved is much easier as you can pay by card or ETH… auctions start at $1 with a wide range of configurations available including probably my best-known Burning Man image as a 1 of 1 Edition, an image which hung in the Smithsonian and some of my favourite scenes across the years.

It’s probably also worth saying that for the video NFTs I’ll be providing the full quality video file to the winner(s) which means you can enjoy things like the Temple Sunrise in 4K as a wallpaper on your UHD TV or high res display nice and easily.

The 24 Hour Countdown Begins

Just over a month ago we raised a whole bunch of money (over $10k) for charity and artists on my first NFT auction. So, let’s do it again! Starting tomorrow, and you can preview some of the art now, I’m going live on Makersplace with a new batch of Burning Man goodness.

The good news for any of you who struggled a bit with Foundation and cryptocurrency wallets is that Makersplace accept card payments and do all of the crypto stuff for you. The best of both worlds and a chance to help out some artists who have struggled through the pandemic! Here’s a little low-res preview of one of the items available.

New NFT Drop Incoming

Cool Video

I’m not sure how I came across this video… maybe a recommendation after my Mooji meditation – but I think it’s pretty cool.

And now for that NFT News…

NEW NFT Goodness!

Here’s a sneak preview of the drop coming in just a little while! It’s my first time on Makersplace, and I have no idea how it will go! What I can tell you is that it will be a lot more straightforward for you all to get involved in as Makersplace allow card payments, not just payments via a Cryptocurrency wallet. 🙂

Passport Sunday Blast from the Past

I was just showing this video to some friends, and that reminded me of the “Making Of” video! That is now one of many videos unlocked with your Passport membership which release every Sunday!

And here is the Passport vid…

The Making Of 80 Days

How about a blast from the past? Here’s one of my first how-to videos. I just watched it again, and it’s kinda lame… I’m not really selling it, I know, but it’s interesting to see how much better I’ve become at explaining things. Anyway, enjoy this 18-minute video of me rambling and trying to explain something.

Passport Sunday Burning Man Story About Acid and the Asian Stalker?

If you’re one of our awesome Passport Member then you’ll get to hear the new (still secret) podcast where I tell stories about different molecules I’ve ingested. Today’s story will take you on quite a wild ride… I’ve survived and lived to tell the tale!

Episode 2 of “Molecules I’ve Ingested”

Okay, well, jump on board for the new episode… I’ll probably release this to the wider world starting next week or so, but I thought you might want to have an early listen. I may add a few more comments from Hugh Howey and others, but this is a fun early version for you. 🙂

The Path to The Man

Burning Man Survival Guide

Be sure to check out my newly converted survival guide here on the blog (thanks Stu and also the team at Pressable for the conversion!) or on the original Adobe Spark site.

Daily Photo – The Path to The Man

I took this a few years ago but only recently edited it. I was able to fly the drone a lot easier a few years ago, but they have become more and more strict. In fact, they are so strict, that I don’t even try anymore. I don’t ask to be a special case or anything… It seems to go against the ethos of Burning Man to ask to be a special case. Although, if they sent me an email on their own and offered it, I would not turn it down!

David Bohm Film and a Freebie

To celebrate September… (how is it September already?) – here’s a great video sent to me from a friend…

Some Free Content from KelbyOne

I talked to my friend Kalebra Kelby and we decided, in honor of Burning Man, to release this whole interview free for a week! It’s called “The Personal Side of Trey Ratcliff” – haha I find that title funny because I’m always very open… but Kalebra is so lovely and she asks some very interesting questions. It’s one of a ton of different videos on Kelby One…maybe the strangest one, in fact. We don’t just talk about Burning Man, of course… all sorts of stuff! But I did record this about 24 hours after I left Burning Man and flew right to see her in Florida. I don’t even know how I was able to be mildly functional after that wild week! Anyway, yeah if you sign up with just your email and the basics (no card), you can see the full interview and some other content for free. I’ll share snippets of it over the next few days on social media. Thanks, Kalebra! BTW, right after I filmed this I almost got stuck with her and Scott before the hurricane hit Florida (I think this was 2017 after my 8th Burning Man?) but I got the last flight out! And not too long after that, they came out to New Zealand to spend some great times… very special. Thanks again for making this free, Kalebra! Here’s the link to join!

A few from Burning Man!

Whelp, there’s no Burning Man this year, which totally harshes my mellow. But, that’s okay! I’ll share some of my favorite photos with you that maybe you haven’t seen… Most of these are unpublished… Feel free to check out the whole Burning Man Gallery on my Smugmug if you wanna see more!

The Lost Lighthouse

Burning Man Portfolio

Today’s daily photo gives me a good opportunity to mention my Burning Man Portfolio that you can enjoy at your leisure! 🙂

Daily Photo – The Lost Lighthouse

I’m not sure if that is the exact name of this art piece or not, but it’s my name for it. Sometimes people online get REALLY ANGRY when I don’t name the art piece and the artist. Man, I take thousands of photos out there of everything and I can’t remember. Besides, I know a lot of artists out there and they really don’t care one way or another. Anyway, I hope you enjoy all the Burning Man photos above!
