Burning Man is big for DANM and for Santa Cruz. DANM student Jonathan Menendez writes:
I am a 6th year burner, which means that I have attended Burning Man for 6 consecutive years. I love everything about Burning Man and this year, I feel compelled to do something for the Santa Cruz decompression event. A "decompression" is a regional event that is ran by all the local burners for the community to remember and exhale within the "default world"-- A mini-burning man.
Santa Cruz has a HUGE community of Burners. Big time! Which is why I have signed DANM up to run a theme camp called Digital DayDreamers, a collective of digital art and new media graduate students from UCSC there to answer every question about your life in the digital world!
