ariadna’s story: “ some things you just know but you don't know how. you can tell people about all these ideas in your mind but its hard to imagine.
black rock city is a place where you can also feel or experience all these ideas you've always had in your mind (but you can't explain why or how they came up). i guess they where always there... because before growing up we were all kids; and i compare burning man to having the chance of being one again (innocence, spontaneity, loving without reason, playing, giving, caring, sharing, dreaming...) couldn't be more happy and thankful for having the chance to experience something like this. “ .

artwork: cosmic voyager

by: martin taylor and the chromaforms collective @chromaforms
from: san francisco, ca
year: 2018 “cosmic voyager” is a sea turtle made from polished stainless steel. on the back of the turtle is a sprawling transparent city protected by a large transparent dome. like the vast abyss of space, the deep playa is a harsh and lifeless environment. the “cosmic turtle” is an ancient and peaceful protector of this tiny world, a mytheme found in hindu, chinese, and indigenous american mythology. this ancient symbolism is combined with reflective futuristic design to conjure visions of a “spaceship earth” voyaging through the cosmos into the great unknown.

long view, a polar bear stands in the desert
by: don kennell and arctic
burn 505 @donkennell
from: santa fe, nm
year: 2018

a 34 foot polar bear made from white car hoods looks across the boundless vista of black rock city. the polar bear is an unlikely visitor to the playa made from materials transformed from another time and place. manifesting forces of climate change, she is searching for allies. taking the “long view” is crucial to survival. combining content and joy, we ask the viewer to develop a relationship with the animal. polar bears help humans imagine a faraway place, a place most will never visit. they are uniquely positioned as ambassadors to bring the arctic into human awareness. animals disappear to make room for our cars. turning wrecked cars into monumental animals visually reverses this process and impacts the consciousness of the viewer.

the orb
by: bjarke ingels, jakob lange, and i, orbot @bjarkeingels @jakob_lange @laurentdec @timo_dk @kaiuwebergmann
from: valby, copenhagen, denmark
year: 2018

inspired by nasa’s project echo, the orb is an inflatable structure to levitate above the playa. the reflective skin will mirror the full layout of brc from the ground, allowing for easier navigation & making visible the burner’s immersion in the community space.

.rainbow bridge
by: josh zubkoff @jazlink
from: san francisco, ca
year: 2018

debuting at burning man 2018, the rainbow bridge is a 100′ long walkable rainbow bridge that will rise from the morning mist and dazzle with leds at night. a great place for a contemplative walk, romantic stroll, to meet friends, or just to sit and embrace the moment.
rainbows represent love, magic, and wonder – some of our favorite aspects of burning man.

bloom
by: peter hazel @peterhazelart
from: reno, nv
year: 2018
peter hazel and his team are bringing back the 40 foot tall jellyfish from 2017. from a distance, this piece looks like a single large creature, but upon arriving one will realize it is comprised of thousands of smaller jellyfish, swimming in a sea of tentacles and lights. visitors are able to climb up inside to the top of the jellyfish dome to have an incredible view of the playa. whether you climb up to experience the sunrise, or watch the man burn through the dome, bloom gives people a new perspective on their previous burning man experiences and views. it forces many to come out of their comfort zone, face their fear of heights and so much more.

burners: bonnie & kerry @bendybonnie @kerryward

kerry’s story: “ 2018 was different for me as it was the first time i attended without my daughter indigo, who was with me every year from ages 11-18. so i felt almost like i could be a black rock city gypsy floating between camps and friends as i soaked in the people, art and experiences. having my great friends gary and bonnie morgan, another father daughter combo who i've know for several decades on hand to create fun and explore was a massive bonus. the art inspires creativity and interactivity and roaming the playa without a set agenda always yields interesting times. the acro we do just hits another visual level with the backdrop offered by burning man. one thing is certain, you earn and create your own experience out in ‪black rock city‬. whatever you are into, there is a great chance you will manifest it, whether it is great times, drama or silliness. “ .

haha...
by: laura kimpton with jeff schomberg
@laurakimpton @jeffschomberg
from: reno, nv
year: 2018
haha… is a celebration of life. with the loss of larry, dana, dj, ken, laura’s brother and other burners , we want to take a moment to celebrate the time we had with them. to raise our proverbial glass in celebration to all they did to create this wonderful, joyful life we have as part of burning man. while we feel their losses keenly, mourn their parting from this physical life, we know that they, and larry in particular, liked to revel in the moment, seize the day, and share laughter and fun whenever and wherever possible. even in the darkest moments, the darkest times, we need to cling to this remembrance of joy and laughter. this sculpture is a reminder, a touchstone, and a celebration. .

emily’s story: “ this was my second year at burning man, my first being in 2015. so many life changes happened in those three years, many ups and downs, joys and losses. the first days at the burn, my feelings were fluctuating rapidly: one moment i was being confronted with the reality of some of bm’s changes over merely three years, the next moment seeing an old friend and forgetting all about it, and then moving back and forth between what my ego kept telling me and what my heart truly felt. and after the initial turmoil, after that feeling of “get me out of here!!” i began to settle in, and then the magic happened.
my biggest learning from burning man this year was that one very important part of my life was something that i left behind when moving from new york to berlin. community. and the concept of community is something i wish to cultivate more deeply in the city i’ve called home nearly the past 2 years. i realized how much energy and strength i gain from being part of a chosen family - and all that comes with being part of an entity that thrives off of collaboration and commitment. community is a big part of who i am, the decisions i make, and the experiences i’ve had so far. i’m one lucky human to have found myself in a loving community in new york, and after this burn i’m going to take care of the seeds i’ve planted in my new home and allow another community to blossom from it. “ .

burners: emily @pizzalicker

emily’s story: “ this was my 3rd burn and just like you my best so far. my past burns were meaningful and provided me a space for growth where this burn allowed me to play and express myself fully. it was comfortable. dusty. glorious. heartfelt.

by the time the man burned, i had finished my first ultra marathon brc 50k, roller-skated to the police, climbed up a 70ft pile of cars (tiny knee scratch/scar) , listened to the most beautiful live piano performance inside the temple, was gifted my goggles back from two years ago, found my aya brother, adopted a sloth named anthony, had the most epic dusty adventure ever, lived in my tent then in my car then in my tent then in may car, and broke my record for not bathing... just the tip of the burning man experience iceberg.

lastly, but certainly the most important was my tribe. the kindest, supportive, weirdest, playful, beautiful souls. throughout the week we seamlessly cared for each other and it was effortless. i made connections that that were truly reciprocal.

it was nice to take a little longer to process this and thank you for this gift “ .
