The annual gathering of Burning Man has been underway since August 28 and will run until September 5, 2016. Held in the temporary city of Black Rock, Nevada, USA, the one week festival hosts thousands of music and art lovers while they romp about in the desert. This year’s theme is “DaVinci’s Workshop” and hundreds of art and architectural installations have been created just for the event. Thanks to social media, we have an inside look at the sculptures inspired by DaVinci’s famous artworks and inventions. Take a look below.
This piece really speaks to me. At first glance it is just a bunch of 2×4’s stuck in the ground but then, from the correct vantage point you realize that all of the markings perfectly line up with the mountains in the horizon. This works from four different angles and with just as many mountains. The complexity is astounding while it’s simplicity is perfection. #burningman2016 #burningman #burningmanart #firstburn #firstburningman #art #artwork
