Burning Man 2013

People unfamiliar with burning man often assume that it’s a regular festival - a mostly passive experience where everything is planned, orchestrated and pre-packaged by the event producers, for the entertainment of the attendees. In fact, at burning man, the opposite is true. The people who go are not just attendees, but active participants in every sense of the word. They create the city, the interaction, the art, the performance and ultimately the experience. TPI hit the nevada desert to investigate.
