Burning Man 2011: Time Lapse Burn Night Video by Grant Kaye

September 10, 2011

<p><a href=”http://vimeo.com/28801666″>Burning Man 2011: Rites of Passage – Burn Night Timelapse</a> from <a href=”http://vimeo.com/grantkaye”>Grant Kaye</a> on <a href=”http://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a&gt;.</p>

I’m sorry I haven’t posted since last Wednesday during Burning Man. I’m a bit overwhelmed with unpacking and cleaning up as well as moving my mom’s belongings to my house.

There’s so much I want to write about that that’s overwhelming as well–posts about art cars, bicycles, the Temple, Burning Scouts, Kidsville, and more. And I have been having the wildest surreal dreams! In them, there’s a time and space travel portal to Black Rock City…

In the meantime, I had to post this wonderful time lapse video by Grant Kaye of this year’s Burn night from sunset to 4am. In case you weren’t out there this year, that’s the Temple all lit up and large and glowing to the left. The Man is in the Center of all that glowing activity made up of Art Cars and EL Wire on bikes and people and art.

We too watched the Burn from a distance instead of right up on the perimeter as usual: we were up on the “Poop Deck” above the operations computers and satellites just behind First Camp where a lot of the Burning Man staff big wigs play. It was quiet and peaceful and relatively dust free up there. We didn’t get jostled or squashed and we didn’t have to worry about someone stealing our bikes. It was an awesome Burn all around and you can tell from the images in the time lapse that the conditions were perfect–rare is the Burn night without wind and accompanying dust storms and white-outs!

Pictured: the Man after the Core Burn before it was opened again. More Burning Man photos and reports to follow. Soon. I promise.

    Hey, grant. May I use your footage for submission to the Guinness Book of Worlds records to qualify the 1MileClock as the “Worlds Largest Timepiece”. They may want to use your footage in promotions. is that OK? – Jim Bowers Clock artist) jimbowers@foothill.net
