It’s hard to believe that all of this has to be disassembled
without a trace.
The most amazing part of Burning Man, at least according to
someone who has never been, is that it is ephemeral by design. Some
70,000 people descend on Black Rock City, a barren playa in Nevada,
and when they leave, every scrap of human evidence leaves with
them. That’s impressive for any old camping group but astounding
for Burning Man, an art event where people erect unbelievably huge
structures that will exist for a mere nine days (unless their work
to the Smithsonian, that is).
