Burning Man

Playing with Fire

Burning Man is an anarchistic art festival, pop-up city, and laboratory for social experimentation.

Tumultuous, thundering cheers echo into the evening air as fireworks begin to pierce the inky sky above the Black Rock Desert of Nevada. A 40-foot-tall wooden effigy rises into the air atop a 50-foot pedestal, waiting silently, patiently for his moment. His countdown clock reads 00:00:00.

There is a sudden flash of light, a tremendous WHOMP, and Burning Man ignites.
