Mark at Boing Boing put up this really nice video from Current of the build going on at Burning Man. I really like the long swoopy shots between structures; it gives you a bit of a feel for how huge the site is.
Every year thousands of people descend onto Black Rock to build a city in the desert from scratch. And for many of the artists and engineers, the period of set-up before the gates actually open has become the most important part of this yearly event. We talk to the founder of Burning Man, Larry Harvey, as well as the masterminds behind the art installations Temple, Elevation, Babylon, Mutopia, and of course, the team behind the building of The Man, as they share their views and show us the art that embodies this year’s theme: The American Dream.
