Temple/Grandpa - Burning Man '04 by Halcyon @ Camp Lustmonkey
We left it open to the first page. The page that read, “Please Return to….”
If anyone doubts the power of art...If anyone misunderstands the “rave” that is Burning Man… they should go straight to David Best’s temple next year. The structure itself is awe inspiring. A towering monument made of recycled wood trash. Then, as people fill it with heartfelt messages, it gathers an indescribable power. Thousands of people empty their hearts into this communal expression. The sound of wailing fills the place. It is so powerful, it simply must be experienced to understand. Then…after being completed less than a week…it burns. And all of our hearts’ contributions ride the flames to heaven.
