Burning Man is an event held annually since 1986 in the western United States. Since 1998, the event has been located at Black Rock City, a temporary city erected in the Black Rock Desert of northwestern Nevada. The event is located approximately 100 miles north-northeast of Reno (1)
This is Humminglion (Henry) going out with his camera to capture stories and moments of 2019 Burning Man.
A most magical sunset performance from the Black Rock Philharmonic complete with fire trumpet during the 1812 Overture finale!
KEYS TO THE UNIVERSE BY JOE DAUER
This was a LED lit piano at the 7:30 & B Plaza that we randomly passed by. We stood there for awhile and enjoyed the music from several other random Burners.
HEAD MAZE BY MATTHEW SCHULTZ AND THE PIER
This giant head represents the complexity of our mind. On one side the face is in calm repose but on the other side – the head has been clawed open in frustration. When it was open, you could crawl into the four story maze complete with 18 rooms.
STONE 27 BY BENJAMIN LANGHOLZ
These 1000 lb stones were attached to steel wires and look like they’re hanging in mid-air. As you step onto them, they shake a bit and seem unstable.. especially at the very top.
AWFUL’S GAS & SNACK BY MATTHEW GERRING AND CRANK FACTORY
A fully functioning gas station from the future – this was one my go to places for sunrise. All sorts of random people would walk by and the lovely ensuing conversations were worth the trek to the trash fence. In this case, a guy on an electric one wheeler wearing butterfly wings popped a purple smoke canister just as I was pulling my camera out!
PARALUNA BY CHRISTOPHER SCHARDT
This giant spinning disc of LEDs played alongside classical musical with all kinds of swirling and trippy artwork. At times the spinning disc would lower into the crowd, making it feel like it was right on top of you. This was taken during the wednesday night orchestra concert which was synced with the Paraluna disc. Mind-blowing.
DANCING BEES BY ANDREA GREENLEES AND ANDY TIBBETTS
The idea came from forager bees who do a little dance with other bees as a way of communication. They’re wearing ballet shoes too.
WHEELS OF ZOROASTER RESURRECTION BY ANTON VIDIZ-WARD
Holy moly – when this art piece was operating it was one of the craziest things I saw on playa this year. The sound of the burning wood crashing and flying around in the metal wheels while massive ember clouds flew everywhere was staggeringly beautiful.
ELEVATION BY MICHAEL CHRISTIAN, AURIAH MILANES, SCOTTIE CHAPMAN AND DAVID ANDRES
This lovely metal spire was made for climbing. At the top is a throne chair facing the rest of playa and the best seat in the house for sunset.
DREAM SWING BY LINDSAY GLATZ AND WILLIAM NEMITOFF
Seemingly suspended in midair – these glowing clouds invited playtime by changing all sorts of colors when in midair.
