Back From Burning Man / Teaser Pictures

As I’m writing this post it has already been over three weeks since I left the Playa which is home to Black Rock City.  Playa is a term used to describe the vast area of flat, dried up land that hosts art cars, art installations, music and structures that are set on fire.  Here are a few of my favourites that were processed on Instagram.

The Sonic Runway, my favourite installation this year.  32 separate rings of light that change colour depending on the music being played at the start of the line.  It would be in sync with how fast the music travels.
