Image © 2012 D.M. Troutman/DMT Imaging || "Beneath the Man" | August 29, 2012 | Black Rock City, NV | Burning Man is yearly festival held in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada and defies easy description. It's a little like Mad Max meets Dr. Seuss meets Blade Runner during the city of Mos Eisley from Star Disneyland...during Mardi Gras...on the moon. The centerpiece of the week-long event is an enormous human effigy that is ultimately burned (like much of the art on the playa). This year the Man was installed on a multi-story base, originally designed by Black Rock City architect Rod Garrett (whose ashes were burned in the Man in 2011). The base contained a large, climbable flower “pistil” inside of it, reflecting rebirth and renewal as part of the “Fertility 2.0” theme for 2012. The ceiling above the pistil was open, revealing the Man towering in the sky.
