The Art of Burning Man 2019

Chris and I returned to Burning Man again in August of 2019. This was my second year and his fourth. The theme this year was “Metamorphoses”. The sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of Burning Man are pretty hard to describe, so I’ll just post a few of my favorite art pictures (all taken with my iphone):

“I.L.Y.” by Dan Mountain
“Mariposita” by Chris Carnabuci
“The Temple of Direction” by Geordie Van Der Bosch
“The Folly” by Dave Keane and the Folly Brothers
“Giant Harmonic Pendulum” by Gyuszi Suto
“Wing Portal” by a group of California artists. After the Burn, it will be publicly installed in a part of California that was affected by the wildfires last year
“Alternity” by Roy (The Wiz) Trammell
“Bee Dance” by Andrea Greenlees, Andy Tibbetts, and Josh Haywood
“The Man” by Yelena Filipchuk and Serge Beaulieu
“The Awakening” by Philip DePoala
“Sacred Grounds” by Michael Benisty
“Love” by Laura Kimpton
“Paraluna” by Christopher Schardt
The Temple Burns

It’s pretty hard to quantify Burning Man into words, so this one will be a photo essay of this year’s theme, I Robot. Enjoy just a few of the sights- I doubt I saw even half of what was going on there! There’s lots of photos here so they take a minute to load- be patient. Click on any image you want to enlarge.
