Burning Man 2018 Photos

There are roughly A TRILLION PHOTOS on this page. Some images are NSFW. Please be patient while this bloated bandwidth behemoth of a page loads. Maybe go have a coffee and come back when it’s done loading? Actually maybe go exercise your scroll finger. You’re gonna need it.

Here are my Burning Man 2018 Photos!
All of my Burning Man images are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial license. If you share them you must attribute the photographs to me by name and link to Duncan.co You can’t sell them or make money from them in any way whatsoever. That includes advertising on a website.

I tried my best to caption every single image correctly. All 1,111 of them. If you know what the correct caption should be please comment at the very bottom of this post waaaaaay down there or email me directly and I’ll update this post accordingly.

This was first published October 12th, 2018 at 11:11AM EDT. I will be updating this post with the correct captions, typos, and corrections as they come in. If the captions don’t make sense it’s because the image titles aren’t appearing on this post correctly yet. I’m trying to fix that. (If you happen to know how to get image titles to display in a wordpress post contact me!)

Notes
Burning Man 2018 was certainly a great burn. People have been saying it may have been one of the greatest burns ever. IMHO every burn is so unique that trying to rank them is a fools errand. Regardless, it was an incredible event. Everything seemed to go right from the weather to all the builds. During the ten days I was on playa I shot 13,323 images in total. That works out to roughly 1,300 photos per day at a rate of 1 photo per minute for 240 hours straight. To give you an idea of how silly that is, if I spend 5 seconds looking at each image it takes 18 hours non-stop. And that’s just to look at them for five seconds each. I had to decide which ones don’t work and which ones might. In other words, the amount of time it has taken me to shoot, cull, process, keyword, and publish this gallery is completely absurd. I’ve gained 10 pounds staring at the computer processing them all. It has taken me every spare moment I’ve had since I left the playa and I love it. It’s how I decompress. It’s just been a lot and I’m spent.

Why do I do this?
When I hear my alarm clocks at 3:30AM every morning at the burn I ask myself that question. Why THE HELL am I doing this? It takes me a couple minutes to remember that it doesn’t even matter why in that moment. I know I have to just do the work right now. I can think about it later. Do the work right now. Do the work right now. Do the work RIGHT NOW. Burning Man is such a fleeting bit of magic that I know I have to get to work right this instant. The complete mental and physical exhaustion is part of it. So if I just do the work right now everything else takes care of itself. So why do I do this? I do it because it makes me happy. I feel present, connected, and happy when I’m out shooting the burn. I’m glad I did the work. I’m pleased to know that maybe you’ll find the photos interesting or useful or delightful. Who knows, if I’m lucky these images will bring a little bit of that wonderful Burning Man feeling wherever you are.

Reddit thread.

Enjoy!

Click on the photo to see it at full resolution. Be gentle please my server is getting absolutely crushed right now… Here is a playlist to listen to while viewing the images.

0001 – I feel like I always see this one on the way in.

0002 – Not having license plates is probably a good way to get pulled over.

0003 – …Look at the guy in the RV passing. That is a blind hill pass in an RV. Please calm the fuck down and don’t pass. If you’re on your way to Burning Man you’re not in a rush by definition. I don’t care how late your project is, reckless driving isn’t worth it. Sorry had to rant there a little. My bad.

0004 – We stopped and had a look around.

0005 – Burning Man is exhausting because barrage of stimulation begins long before you even get to the playa. Your brain has to deal with it all. Like what is this lovely man on the roof doing? Setting up to play live music I guess?

0006 – This person insisted I make this photograph. She also pretty much forced us to try on her wares. Good sales techniques but I wasn’t interested.

0007 – Where the gravel turns into playa.

0008 – Perhaps someone can explain why this year’s sign is also a bigass potable water tank? I’m sure there is a good reason but I can’t figure out what it is.

0009 – Slow down people. Slow down.

0010 – Make Burning Man Great Again?

0011 – Was quite dusty on our way in on August 24th.

0012 – Just my people waiting to enter Burning Man. I love meeting people in line. Like this burner who goes by the playa name Happy. She was the best and we had a moment.

0013 – August 24th.

0014 – There was 2 or 3 of these in a caravan.

0015 – How many BRC stickers do you count?

0016 – What is the thing sticking out the back? (those lights tho!)

0017 – Had to do will call this year. Long story… Anyway there was no line and it was super easy. Thanks Will Call crew!

0018 – The range of vehicles you see…

0019 – This gif is relevant

0020 – There is a correlation between how organized your shit is and how nice gate is to you. He appeared to be very pleased with us.

0021 – I really like this skull at Gate not sure the name of the artist.

0022 – I’ve run into Uncle Ira several times over the years. We had a nice chat. Ira said he might be done Burning. I told him that we would really miss him and that everyone loves him and enjoys his “cheesy tchotchkes”. If you see this Uncle Ira, please come back. We <3 you!

0023 – My brain screams HEY LOOK AT THAT. My brain has caught a glimpse of something out of the corner of my eye. This little process will happen thousands and thousands of times over the next 10 days and it will be so great.

0024 – Always interesting how people have their mini temporary setup before their actual setup. Dump a few chairs and a cooler. Then go go go! Build build build.

0025 – Burnstreampoint Lighthouse I ran into these guys at the Grand Sierra in Reno while walking the dogs. They had like a fleet of 6 big fifth wheels and a full size semi truck with a forklift, and this scissor lift on it. Some burners really go hard.

0026 – A tent and a delivery truck. Nice.

0027 – But I liked how it looked.

0028 – I was going to come back and shoot this properly (an idea I put off until it was too late). If you want to make photographs at Burning Man there is no better time than the present. I learn this lesson the hard way every year. I always say I’ll come back and get a better photo of this later. Then poof, the moment is gone forever.

0031 – FloBot by: Jessica Levine from: South Lake Tahoe, CA year: 2018
FloBot is an interactive flower-like steel sculpture with a character all her own. She will stand on exposed roots as she evolves into a blossomed being. People will be able to climb up the roots and “get inside her head” bouncing and rocking with the use of large suspension springs. Flo represents the notion of learning to flow with all of the parts of one’s self, and finding strength within them. Her roots correlate with all of the deepest parts of ourselves–the buried parts, which make us who we are. Exposing the roots and making them a part of the blossom at the top represents the idea that everything is an integral part of the whole self, even (and especially) the buried parts–not just the pretty flowery surface parts.

0034 – Cosmic Voyager by: Martin Taylor and The Chromaforms Collective from: San Francisco, CA year: 2018

0035 – Passage by: Dana Albany from: San Francisco, CA year: 2018
Passage is an installation of a man, in a captive gesture, leisurely walking while its hand sweeps through stalks of wheat. The sculpture clearly highlights characteristics of a human form; muscle, sinuous tendon, sculpted hands, feet. Yet, it’s a composite of mechanical debris and steel. Viewers may hypothesize, is this a man? is it part robot? and what is the blurry fine-line between each? The other huge component is the presence of the wheat. It symbolizes abundance, life, fertility. It is food, subsistence, of which without, the human race would be extinct. Viewers can look closer at the inherent beauty of the human form, contemplate mechanics/technology or most importantly, be reminded of our absolute reliance on nature in the end.

0038 – Relatively good conditions at this moment.

0039 – Create sparks for a few minutes. This will make the photographer happy and then they will leave you alone so you can do your work.

0042 – Galaxia by: Arthur Mamou-Mani from: London, United Kingdom year: 2018
Galaxia celebrates hope in the unknown, stars, planets, black holes, the movement uniting us in swirling galaxies of dreams. A superior form of Gaia in Isaac Asimov’s Foundation series, Galaxia is the ultimate network, the fabric of the universe connecting living beings into one entity.
Galaxia is shaped of 20 timber trusses converging as a spiral towards one point in the sky. The triangular trusses form dierent paths towards a central space holding a giant 3D printed mandala, the heart of Galaxia. The timber modules start large enough to hold small alcoves in which people can write in peace. As participants walk through the path, the timber modules lift up and become thinner and thinner towards the sky as people reach the central mandala.

0046 – I really like this quiet moments when builders are taking a break or nobody is working at that moment.

0047 – Previously known as L4K, these are the folks who create the ring of lights around the man. It also serves as perimeter for man burn. They are seeking funding for a new set of lights to mark the ring around the man.

0048 – Previously known as L4K, these are the folks who create the ring of lights around the man. It also serves as perimeter for man burn. They are seeking funding for a new set of lights to mark the ring around the man.

They are seeking funding for a new set of lights to mark the ring around the man. By the way this is how you can tell they are a hardworking camp. Nobody is here they’re all out working.

0050 – Pretty much nothing beats riding around checking out amazing art with wonderful friends. (Important note, these pants feature a Unicorn vs Narwal battle. And if memory serves there is a Cat riding the Unicorn and Pug riding the Narwal. FTW!)

0051 – Baba Yaga’s House by: Jessi Sprocket Janusee and Baba Yaga’s Book Club from: Reno, NV year: 2018
The house of Baba Yaga will rise from the playa straddling it’s mechanical chicken legs. The crone’s house will be poised to run at the slightest provocation. Ascend her staircases to test the old witch if you dare. Are you able to walk through the veil of mortality into the space where the seer dwells? If you are strong of will, feeling bold and willing to show vulnerability she may allow you to venture within her sanctum.

0052 – I’m not sure exactly what happened here. I only caught this out of the corner of my eye but it appeared as though this Burner fell off this piece backwards and was caught by friends. Trust fall style. Maybe she fainted.

0059 – Night at the Climb In by: Dustin Weatherford from: Reno, NV year: 2018
Night at the Climb In will be a 70 foot tall stack of reclaimed junkyard cars, stacked straight up, one on top of the next. Every car will be climbable, visitable, interactive in its own way. The stack will end in a crows nest that sits at the top of the structure, just under a large spinning lit up sign.

0100 – Looks so good. I don’t know anything about makeup but this idea of using the playa as makeup might be worth exploring.

0104 – Bloom by: Peter Hazel from: Reno, NV year: 2018

0105 – I ran into a burner here who has a net worth over $50 Billion according to that crazy Forbes list. He was by far the wealthiest person I’ve ever met. There was a group of about 10 burners around and nobody knew who he was but I recognized him immediately. I nervously introduced myself thinking he would be some kind of time traveller or really mean to me. Turns out he was super friendly and his main concern was finding interactive art pieces for his children to explore because they had to go back to school soon. You know like completely normal stuff. Everyone puts their pants on the same way… If even you’re one of the top 20 wealthiest people out of 7.7 Billion. It was a real treat to meet him after reading about their business.

0107 – Passage by: Dana Albany from: San Francisco, CA year: 2018
Passage is an installation of a man, in a captive gesture, leisurely walking while its hand sweeps through stalks of wheat. The sculpture clearly highlights characteristics of a human form; muscle, sinuous tendon, sculpted hands, feet. Yet, it’s a composite of mechanical debris and steel. Viewers may hypothesize, is this a man? is it part robot? and what is the blurry fine-line between each? The other huge component is the presence of the wheat. It symbolizes abundance, life, fertility. It is food, subsistence, of which without, the human race would be extinct. Viewers can look closer at the inherent beauty of the human form, contemplate mechanics/technology or most importantly, be reminded of our absolute reliance on nature in the end.

0108 – Quite a challenge to make a photo like this. You have to shoot the image of the moon and the man separetely because it’s impossible to get them both perfectly in focus in-camera.

0124 – George is an amazing photographer. He has been shooting Burning Man for ages. In this photograph George is showing me his system for organizing Burning Man information while he is on playa. I asked him to show me when I told he where we we’re camped and he quickly noted it. So simple and effective. Someone tells you something, and you just jot it down on an individual card. Then you can reshuffle later and discard as needed etc. I will steal this idea. Thanks George!

0125 – The Little Schoolhouse of Hope and Fear by: Gratis from: Vista, CA year: 2018
If all you had was the rough detritus of war, the cheap rubble of constant calamity, what would you build with it? A bunker, a church, or a school? Would you create a place of hope or fear? Of the past or for the future?
Hope rising up from a violent and chaotic past, Fear transformed into building blocks: found metal, often riddled by gunre, torn by the wind and baked by the desert sun are incorporated into this replica of the traditional “little red schoolhouse.” The Little Schoolhouse of Hope and Fear stands on the playa as a beacon to those who wish to teach a better way for the future, or to those ready to learn from the failures of the past.

0143 – Galaxia by: Arthur Mamou-Mani from: London, United Kingdom year: 2018
Galaxia celebrates hope in the unknown, stars, planets, black holes, the movement uniting us in swirling galaxies of dreams. A superior form of Gaia in Isaac Asimov’s Foundation series, Galaxia is the ultimate network, the fabric of the universe connecting living beings into one entity.
Galaxia is shaped of 20 timber trusses converging as a spiral towards one point in the sky. The triangular trusses form dierent paths towards a central space holding a giant 3D printed mandala, the heart of Galaxia. The timber modules start large enough to hold small alcoves in which people can write in peace. As participants walk through the path, the timber modules lift up and become thinner and thinner towards the sky as people reach the central mandala.

0160 – Passage by: Dana Albany from: San Francisco, CA year: 2018
Passage is an installation of a man, in a captive gesture, leisurely walking while its hand sweeps through stalks of wheat. The sculpture clearly highlights characteristics of a human form; muscle, sinuous tendon, sculpted hands, feet. Yet, it’s a composite of mechanical debris and steel. Viewers may hypothesize, is this a man? is it part robot? and what is the blurry fine-line between each? The other huge component is the presence of the wheat. It symbolizes abundance, life, fertility. It is food, subsistence, of which without, the human race would be extinct. Viewers can look closer at the inherent beauty of the human form, contemplate mechanics/technology or most importantly, be reminded of our absolute reliance on nature in the end.

0168 – Robot Resurrection by: Shane Evans from: Denver, CO year: 2018 Robot Resurrection is towering 30 foot tall, human piloted, articulating sculpture made from reclaimed airplane parts and found objects. From the torso cockpit, the operator(s) manipulate the Robot’s motions and fire effects. This piece is a representation of we all have become… Robots. It is a wake-up call of how large these problems are. We have been controlled for too long. Robot Resurrection was born from what we as a society have discarded. Our hope is that this 28′ Robot will inspire reflection upon one’s self and be a reminder of the power we all hold. We hope it awakens some awareness of our situation and encourages some small change on a small scale that leads to big change in the massive system.

0227 – Paraluna by: Christopher Schardt from: Oakland, CA year: 2018
Paraluna combines kinetic sculpture, LEDs and music. Its main component is a disc 10m in diameter with 17,280 LEDs. A computer controls the LEDs while rotating, raising, lowering, and tilting the disc.
Some of the LED patterns work with the rotation of the disk, creating spirals. Others use persistence-of-vision, making an image hover in space above the spinning LEDs. Spokes demonstrates both of these styles: https://photos.app.goo.gl/DcP9IauNTjRHENUh2
Surrounding the disc are several high-quality speakers that play classical music at comfortable, yet immersive volume, creating a comfortable, peaceful place to be. Patterns are chosen to complement each musical piece, as with Firmament:

Some of the LED patterns work with the rotation of the disk, creating spirals. Others use persistence-of-vision, making an image hover in space above the spinning LEDs. Spokes demonstrates both of these styles: https://photos.app.goo.gl/DcP9IauNTjRHENUh2
Surrounding the disc are several high-quality speakers that play classical music at comfortable, yet immersive volume, creating a comfortable, peaceful place to be. Patterns are chosen to complement each musical piece, as with Firmament:

0256 – QuadruPOD by: Scott Parenteau (the Tinman) from: Sacramento, CA year: 2018 I’m calling this machine the QuadruPOD simply because its a Pod with 4 legs. It’s a variation of a Strandbeest and uses a modified version of Theo Jensens leg linkage. This will allow the pod to walk around the playa during the daylight hours creating an art piece that actually looks for you. This pod will be an all metal walking machine with a steam punk appearance, lots of rust and plenty of moving gears. An operator will ride inside this machine during its performances on the playa but it will be designed to operate robotically as well.

0259 – Passage by: Dana Albany from: San Francisco, CA year: 2018
Passage is an installation of a man, in a captive gesture, leisurely walking while its hand sweeps through stalks of wheat. The sculpture clearly highlights characteristics of a human form; muscle, sinuous tendon, sculpted hands, feet. Yet, it’s a composite of mechanical debris and steel. Viewers may hypothesize, is this a man? is it part robot? and what is the blurry fine-line between each? The other huge component is the presence of the wheat. It symbolizes abundance, life, fertility. It is food, subsistence, of which without, the human race would be extinct. Viewers can look closer at the inherent beauty of the human form, contemplate mechanics/technology or most importantly, be reminded of our absolute reliance on nature in the end.

0260 – The photography equivalent of ‘more cowbell’ is ‘more sunstars’… Guilty as charged. I just love the way they look.

0261 – Robot Resurrection by: Shane Evans from: Denver, CO year: 2018 Robot Resurrection is towering 30 foot tall, human piloted, articulating sculpture made from reclaimed airplane parts and found objects. From the torso cockpit, the operator(s) manipulate the Robot’s motions and fire effects. This piece is a representation of we all have become… Robots. It is a wake-up call of how large these problems are. We have been controlled for too long. Robot Resurrection was born from what we as a society have discarded. Our hope is that this 28′ Robot will inspire reflection upon one’s self and be a reminder of the power we all hold. We hope it awakens some awareness of our situation and encourages some small change on a small scale that leads to big change in the massive system.

A numbered posting at each describes the evolution of “Fire Inside”, about the art form born on-playa a decade past, born from arson on Liberty itself, now playa folklore … about how these enigmatic, backward fires now produce massive playa artifacts, the only known to survive their own burn… How the burning style, a whisper of the playa itself has become powerful ritual that transforms earth, wind, fire and water into enduring talismen charged with their own mission of liberation and renewal. But can such artifacts guard and guide us to a positive AI singularity? Learn why they can and how they will — with Artifactual Intelligence… URL: https://www.fireinsideart.com/burning-man-project-2018

0265 – Galaxia by: Arthur Mamou-Mani from: London, United Kingdom year: 2018
Galaxia celebrates hope in the unknown, stars, planets, black holes, the movement uniting us in swirling galaxies of dreams. A superior form of Gaia in Isaac Asimov’s Foundation series, Galaxia is the ultimate network, the fabric of the universe connecting living beings into one entity.
Galaxia is shaped of 20 timber trusses converging as a spiral towards one point in the sky. The triangular trusses form dierent paths towards a central space holding a giant 3D printed mandala, the heart of Galaxia. The timber modules start large enough to hold small alcoves in which people can write in peace. As participants walk through the path, the timber modules lift up and become thinner and thinner towards the sky as people reach the central mandala.

0294 – Seesaw Wave Machine by: Ryan Elmendorf and Nick Geurts from: Wheat Ridge, CO year: 2018 Seesaw Wave Machine is an interactive mechanical wave machine in the form of 21 seesaws connected with torsion bars. A wave motion is initiated when any individual seesaw is actuated by participants. Each end of each seesaw has a spotlight that displays the dynamic wave shape across the playa. With 42 total seats, it is an opportunity for many participants to interact and collaborate to affect (and be affected by) the overall motion of the system. Its large scale, dynamic motion and array of spotlights will draw participants in..

0296 – Trace by: Kate Greenberg from: San Francisco, CA year: 2018 Inspired by the interconnectivity and ephemerality of the playa, Trace is an installation of colored rope that weaves into a mirage-esque form above the dust. This art piece reflects on the way Black Rock City teases our perception of reality as we generate and explore it together, like a shared dream. It celebrates how individual journeys cross paths in the dust, yet altogether intertwine to shape an evanescent landscape and its broader community. URL: https://www.facebook.com/traceplaya/

0352 – Galaxia by: Arthur Mamou-Mani from: London, United Kingdom year: 2018
Galaxia celebrates hope in the unknown, stars, planets, black holes, the movement uniting us in swirling galaxies of dreams. A superior form of Gaia in Isaac Asimov’s Foundation series, Galaxia is the ultimate network, the fabric of the universe connecting living beings into one entity.
Galaxia is shaped of 20 timber trusses converging as a spiral towards one point in the sky. The triangular trusses form dierent paths towards a central space holding a giant 3D printed mandala, the heart of Galaxia. The timber modules start large enough to hold small alcoves in which people can write in peace. As participants walk through the path, the timber modules lift up and become thinner and thinner towards the sky as people reach the central mandala.

Night at the Climb In will be a 70 foot tall stack of reclaimed junkyard cars, stacked straight up, one on top of the next. Every car will be climbable, visitable, interactive in its own way. The stack will end in a crows nest that sits at the top of the structure, just under a large spinning lit up sign.

0395 – Nice to see you again Mark!

0396 – We love your movies and thanks for voicing the old man.

0397 – Stewart Harvey (Larry Harvey’s brother) and friends paying respects. Best to keep my distance in a moment like this. The more I look at this image the more I think about those of you who keep calling for a ban on cameras at Burning Man. Please consider that Stewart has been photographing Burning Man since day 1. What is Stewart doing in a potentially painful moment like this? He is still shooting. So maybe next time you think about trying to stop some of us photographers from radically expressing ourselves through photography think about Stewart. Photography is part of Burning Man and always will be.

0407 – One of those burners who builds massive things you can climb on and is totally nice about everything. He gives out free ear plugs too. Huge props to you Greg. Thank you for your massive contributions to Burning Man year in and year out.

0408 – Not sure who is playing here but I always love the Mayan Warrior music.

0409 – Always enjoy the music out here. They have some amazing DJs on that dang bus. Also can you find the moon in this picture?

0410 – Thank you for letting me make this photograph.

0411 – I fell off the art car I was shooting this photo from (Chairman of the Bored). By a total fluke I landed right on my feet. It scared the crap out of me though. If I had fallen almost any other way I would have been seriously injured. It was a good reminder of how being way too fucking tired is just like being intoxicated. I always burn completely sober and I almost hurt myself really badly here. Hashtag totes lucky blessed AF yo.

0415 – Big Pollinator by: Jakob Bokulich from: New York, NY year: 2018 At approximately 23 feet high, Big Pollinator seems to hover in the air, a machine of flower-like modules spinning in synchronicity. The shape of the modules creates an interplay of lights and shadows between the “flowers,” making hexagons appear and disappear, ephemeral patterns suggestive of a beehive. Big Pollinator is about interconnectedness. People, weather patterns, animals, plants, the planet… We are all connected, like gears in a machine, or bees in a colony. We are part of the same organism. URL: http://bigpollinator.com

The house of Baba Yaga will rise from the playa straddling it’s mechanical chicken legs. The crone’s house will be poised to run at the slightest provocation.

If you are strong of will, feeling bold and willing to show vulnerability she may allow you to venture within her sanctum.

0509 – Baba Yaga’s House by: Jessi Sprocket Janusee and Baba Yaga’s Book Club from: Reno, NV year: 2018
The house of Baba Yaga will rise from the playa straddling it’s mechanical chicken legs. The crone’s house will be poised to run at the slightest provocation. Ascend her staircases to test the old witch if you dare. Are you able to walk through the veil of mortality into the space where the seer dwells? If you are strong of will, feeling bold and willing to show vulnerability she may allow you to venture within her sanctum.

Galaxia celebrates hope in the unknown, stars, planets, black holes, the movement uniting us in swirling galaxies of dreams. A superior form of Gaia in Isaac Asimov’s Foundation series, Galaxia is the ultimate network, the fabric of the universe connecting living beings into one entity.
Galaxia is shaped of 20 timber trusses converging as a spiral towards one point in the sky. The triangular trusses form dierent paths towards a central space holding a giant 3D printed mandala, the heart of Galaxia. The timber modules start large enough to hold small alcoves in which people can write in peace. As participants walk through the path, the timber modules lift up and become thinner and thinner towards the sky as people reach the central mandala.

0602 – Passage by: Dana Albany from: San Francisco, CA year: 2018
Passage is an installation of a man, in a captive gesture, leisurely walking while its hand sweeps through stalks of wheat. The sculpture clearly highlights characteristics of a human form; muscle, sinuous tendon, sculpted hands, feet. Yet, it’s a composite of mechanical debris and steel. Viewers may hypothesize, is this a man? is it part robot? and what is the blurry fine-line between each? The other huge component is the presence of the wheat. It symbolizes abundance, life, fertility. It is food, subsistence, of which without, the human race would be extinct. Viewers can look closer at the inherent beauty of the human form, contemplate mechanics/technology or most importantly, be reminded of our absolute reliance on nature in the end.

0618 – The Lantern by: Josh Haywood from: London, England year: 2018 This installation uses digital design and digital fabrication to create a temple-like structure with an ornate lantern at its heart. Steps on all four sides invite Burners to access the interior and sit in a well under the lantern, their bodies scattered with multiple patterns of light. The patterns originate in traditional and ancient Chinese fretwork but are manipulated with digital tools to create a contemporary interpretation. The Lantern is an intricate structure that is as beautiful lit only by the sun in the daytime as it is when filled with man-made light at night. In China lanterns can also symbolize letting go of past selves and gaining a new self, a concept Burners can contemplate as they nestle in the heart of the structure.

0619 – TBD by: Michael Christian from: Berkeley, CA year: 2018 The sculpture will have an branch brain-like appearance and stand about 15 ft tall by 18ft wide. It will be standing on a root-like base structure that will hold 10-15 people inside its core. The structure will be made of all hand-formed steel. An interactive lighting system will illuminate the sculpture through hundreds of nodes upon its surface. Each pathway of light will be dependent on the pathway of others intersecting with it.

0628 – Robot Resurrection by: Shane Evans from: Denver, CO year: 2018 Robot Resurrection is towering 30 foot tall, human piloted, articulating sculpture made from reclaimed airplane parts and found objects. From the torso cockpit, the operator(s) manipulate the Robot’s motions and fire effects. This piece is a representation of we all have become… Robots. It is a wake-up call of how large these problems are. We have been controlled for too long. Robot Resurrection was born from what we as a society have discarded. Our hope is that this 28′ Robot will inspire reflection upon one’s self and be a reminder of the power we all hold. We hope it awakens some awareness of our situation and encourages some small change on a small scale that leads to big change in the massive system.

0636 – Step Forward – Joining Minds by: Miguel Angel Martin Bordera, founder of Carros de Foc from: San Vicente del Raspeig, Alicante, Spain year: 2018
The two giant puppets meet around their huge table. They are the young Euterpe, example of self-acceptance, and her grandfather Alberto, who shares interesting experiences and accumulated knowledge.
The artwork as a whole is about the concept of acceptance of others without discrimination. Feelings ‘meet’ at the table, feelings which disregard age, gender or stature.
The idea this production wants to transmit is to discover oneself and learn to express oneself freely. When people know, accept and love themselves, recognizing their own virtues and weaknesses, they are able to give their best.
