Burning Man has some different art installations every year. Here are some of the craziest from 2015.
Wheel of Patience
The “Wheel of Patience” is supposed to help you steer your life into calm waters. Developed by Danish artist Hanne Hauge, Burners spin the wheel while the man shown insults them at the top of his lungs.
Becoming, Believing and Beavers
“Becoming, Believing and Beaviers” is the work of Swedish artist Fleming Svofnirdinfdisidnfdinford. He works in wood and mixed media.
Rocket to Mars
“Rocket to Mars” was built as a reflection on our space dreams. The inspiration of French artist Aundray Gordinier, he says he created it “as something to do during Premier League telecasts.”
Pull and Crown
“Pull and Crown” was finished by English agriculture artist Ian Behindthebarnford only two days before the festival.
Shake, Rattle and Fun
“Shake, Rattle and Fun” is a statement of the current EDM music machine. This rolling installation shoots T-shirts, cake and bagels into the crowd at 15-minute intervals.
Purchased by famed art collector Issac Richerthanyou on the first day of the Burn, this timeless piece sold for $10,000,000.
“Assembly” criticizes conformity and lack of creativity in society. Completed late last year by Scottish artist Gobha Beverage.
You know the Illuminati controlled all the farms, don’t you? Don’t you?
Ever known a loved one whose emotions shifted in the wind? That was the inspiration for this landmark piece. “Passion Vane” is viewed after drinking a green mixture artist Dull Goreham says is “completely safe.”
Last Stop To Desolation
Is life a bountiful journey, or a one-way ticket to disappointment? “Last Stop to Desolation” is a mobile piece that roams the playa, emitting a strange noise that some say sounds like Miley Cyrus played backwards to a dubstep beat backed by an Austrian chorus.
“Fail Again” tells Burners life is about trying, failing, trying, failing, and sometimes just failing without trying. Rhodesian artist Fleur Cowan says she has done both many times, possibly more failing than trying.
