Tuba Playing Unicycle Riding Nude in Desert

Wearing a smile and a sousaphone, Erin "Red" Thompson makes music in a balancing act during the annual Burning Man artfest in Nevada's Black Rock Playa. Silver-painted Thompson was like a mirage and disappeared into the crowd on her unicycle. "There are no spectators," says Red, "only participants."  The counter-culture celebration is held in the desert annually.
