Here are some photos from the Indigo Girls performance by Travis Boyer.  Originally I thought this would be a sort of “dye party” but once we got going it became clear that it was really an endurance performance in which Travis magically helped a never-ending line of participants unravel the mysteries of indigo dying.  Like why the stuff comes out of the dye-bath a bright acid green. And how to avoid getting any extra oxygen into the batch.

And it is still cold in the desert – cold enough that in the late afternoon everyone’s clothes froze on the clothesline.
