THE SHEER SIZE OF BLACK ROCK CITY intimidates me to the point that I’m not sure I’d really make it out alive after Burning Man. It amazes me how structured the entire landscape is however. Each person’s tent, RV, or sleeping bag has a “spot” within the C-shaped grid, and despite the chaos that ensues elsewhere, people pretty much stick to that system.
Kim Planert chronicled the experience of wingsuiting over Burning Man last year, in what offers a bird’s-eye view of the desert compound during the day. This footage shows just how massive Black Rock City is, as well as how all of the elements interact together to form what is ultimately America’s biggest party of the year.
