It is extremely hard to explain what Burning Man is but I will try. A theme is presented by the founder of the Burning Man Project; the some 25,000 people who gather on the ancient lake bed playa in Black Rock Desert develop this theme in expressions of art.

The Burning Man community comes together for one week out of the year to participate in this experimental community which challenges its members to express themselves and rely on themselves.
