Still the most unique of the summer US festivals, Burning Man continues to draw crowds in their thousands to this remote part of the Nevada Desert at Black Rock for a week of celebrations in the sun.
For a live stream and webcam feed of the 2014 Burning Man:
Burning Man is a week-long annual event held in the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada, in the United States. The event begins on the last Monday in August, and ends on the first Monday in September, which coincides with the American Labor Day holiday. It takes its name from the ritual burning of a large wooden effigy, which is set alight on Saturday evening.
Because of the variety of goals fostered
by participatory attendees, known as "Burners," Burning Man does not have a single focus. Features of the event are subject to the participants and include community, artwork, absurdity, decommodification, and revelry. Participation is encouraged.
"Radical self-expression arises from the unique gifts of the individual. No one other than the individual or a collaborating group can determine its content. It is offered as a gift to others. In this spirit, the giver should respect the rights and liberties of the recipient." Participants at the Burning Man event in the Black Rock Desert are encouraged to express themselves in a number of ways through various art forms and projects. The event is clothing-optional and public nudity is common, though not practiced by the majority.
In addition to the burning of the Man, the burning of a Temple has become an activity at the event, and takes place the evening after the Man burns. David Best's temple projects were ritually burned from 2000 to 2004. The tradition of participants inscribing on the surfaces of the piece has continued though all of the iterations and are usually of a highly personal nature.
