Some 70,000 people made the pilgrimage to Burning Man 2018 in Nevada, building an alternative universe in the desert. As the dust settles on the annual extravaganza, we bring you video highlights of the most spectacular artworks – ranging from a 30-tonne orb designed by BIG to Burning Man‘s official Temple Galaxia, set ablaze for the festival’s finale.
"I, Robot" is the theme for this year's edition of Burning Man, the world famous, week-long participatory festival held in Nevada's Black Rock Desert. Kicking off this Sunday, the temporary city will feature worthy heirs to the storied history of Burning Man art installations, with grandiose, kooky, thought-provoking, and interactive work.
Burning Man, the annual festival in Nevada's Black Rock Desert, features a slew of wild and elaborate art installations. The festival began more than 30 years ago as a bonfire among friends on a beach in San Francisco; as it has evolved, its art installations have become increasingly more elaborate, with some costing hundreds of thousands of dollars to build.
