In the spring rains the Black Rock Desert playa is saturated with water. When the rains stop the large lakebed begins to dry out creating a mosaic of mud cracks that decorate the flat expanse. Although these mud cracks are formed randomly, they create a beautiful pattern. This piece was created as an Artist-in-Residence at Black Rock Desert National Conservation Area.
