The Nowhere2Nowhere Monorail

This summer, I am building a 500′ long monorail for Burning Man. It will be an ephemeral public transit system that will transport the citizens of Black Rock City from Nowhere to Nowhere for 5 nights, then burn to the ground and disappear without a trace. It will engage its participant’s thinking about public transit, framing the question: how can we build truly functional, well integrated transit systems that support our everyday metropolises.

Helen Cook’s title contains the word ‘engineer’, and she is very excited about finally having the opportunity to drive a train.
