Today: Burning Man, Black Rock Desert, Nevada
----------------------------------Postcard from America----------------------------------

Create and burn it down!
Last Monday of August - first Monday of September.
The city of Black Rock Desert, Nevada is created for one short week and then disassembled or burned down on the last day of the week, leaving the desert as silent and lonely as ever. The whole event is based on the ten principles of "Burning man": Radical inclusion, importance of gifting, decommodification, radical self-reliance, radical self-expression, communal effort, civic responsibility, leaving no trace, participation and immediacy. An effigy of a human, as tall as 80-100ft from the ground, is burned every year in this short-lived city.
