Burning Man: Some Of The Cool Stuff We Saw!
There are so many words to describe Burning Man that it overwhelms me. If you’ve ever attended the annual desert gathering 100 miles north of Reno, Nevada in ‘Black Rock City‘ of artists, hackers, hippies and yuppies alike, you know what I mean. Burning Man is an experiment in temporary community in the middle of nowhere with no resources except for the stuff you bring. Food, water, shelter, transport and whatever hacked together art or science project you can imagine- these are your life for seven days in the desert with 50,000 new friends. This year was themed ‘The Green Man‘ though it seems that the Burner crowd is generally pretty darn savvy when it comes to recycling the world’s trash into amazing, awe inspiring art and functional pieces of technology, shelter and transport. Here are some snippets of our fun time at Burning Man. Stay tuned for some interviews with Burners making their own renewable energy and sharing it with fellow camps.
