Burning Man is known for doing things differently. It has a culture entirely its own and is a festival that others have tried to replicate, but the culture and spirituality that exists at Burning Man cannot be found anywhere else. This year, one of the massive installations that will be coming to Burning is none other then a Boeing 747. The Big Imagination foundation is a nonprofit that is trying to make this happen with a fleet of volunteers and a lot of willpower.
The 747 Project will bring the largest art installation to Burning Man that the event has ever seen. It is a real 747, not a replica or something manufactured. According to the website, it will be a moveable, interactive experience for Burning Man 2015 and years to come.
"The project invokes all of the elements of a journey. It's a destination, transportation and an adventure. Our goal is to move participants in many ways, to take them on a trip not only from Point A to Point B, but also from the outer self to the inner self."
Some burners complain that the festival is being co-opted by celebrities and is becoming too commercial, but the essence still remains. It has become an increasingly popular destination for artists and festivalgoers alike who want to experience the spiritual trip of Burning Man.
Big Imagination has another eight months to finalize its plans with Burning Man's starting date of Aug. 30 arriving. The art event theme this year is "Carnival of Mirrors." Head to the official website for more information.
