The annual bacchanalia under the Nevada sun, Burning Man, kicked off on Sunday. An estimated tens of thousands of people will attend the annual (and elite) festival of sand, scorching temperatures, and super cool structures. Be it art cars, massive shelters, or a three-story Victrola, each day brings about a new batch of things to see.
And if you’re not fortunate enough to attend this year’s Burning Man, you can always catch it live right from the comfort of your clean, cool home.
Curbed checked in on the action earlier this week, but today let’s go back and see what the kids on la Playa are up to thus far. Today we see a medusa head, a emerging from the sand, and fallen head. Seems to be a theme here.
This piece really speaks to me. At first glance it is just a bunch of 2x4's stuck in the ground but then, from the correct vantage point you realize that all of the markings perfectly line up with the mountains in the horizon. This works from four different angles and with just as many mountains. The complexity is astounding while it's simplicity is perfection. #burningman2016 #burningman #burningmanart #firstburn #firstburningman #art #artwork
Until tomorrow, folks.
