BURN BRILLIANTLY

Burning Man in Quotes

Ed. by Rohan Roberts

“Burning Man is an annual gathering that takes place at Black Rock City—a temporary community erected in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. The event is described as an experiment in community and art, influenced by 10 main principles, including ‘radical’ inclusion, self-reliance and self-expression, as well as community cooperation, civic responsibility, gifting, decommodification, participation, immediacy and leaving no trace.

 

Burn Brilliantly is a collection of quotes and digital art that aims to capture the awe, and wonder that so many Burners feel at the event.

 

The excerpts and citations in this book have been curated from various sources including, overheard conversations, blogs, Reddit threads, and an eclectic set of authors who’ve written about Burning Man and have experienced first-hand the magic of Black Rock City.

 

The astronomy-themed digital art have been selected to capture the whimsy and other-worldliness of the Burn experience.
