THE 2016 GOLDEN REBAR AWARDS


Disclaimer for the 12 readers and counting of this blog: given the ever-changing weather pattern combined to the ebb and flow of participants, it is impossible to see the entirety of shelters and dwellings, visit all the camps and villages that dot the city. I spared no effort to bike and walk all the streets back and forth from 2:00 to 10:00, A to L, for two weeks documenting this urban phenomenon. 
If you have any precision to add, calmly contact me: brc(at)philippeglade.com




The Soundscape Golden Rebar



In 2016, indisputably, The Mayan Warrior mutant vehicle could not be missed thanks to a lasers display that rivals any stadium bands, a beyond believes 70,000 watt sound system to dance to talented and daring DJ's like Jennifer Cardini among an impressive list of artists.
Its sound signature brings the promises of tension and rhythm.
The Man's burn set was just phenomenal.




Golden Rebar for Design


The Origami Pod designed by Joerg Student and made of 1 sheet of folded 
corrugated polypropylene with bamboo sticks works like a charm for several year on the playa.
It was the camp of The Shrumen Lumen installation

Everywhere Burning Man 2016
Variation on a classic DPW shade structure. 
White poles and beams with a white ground cover to minimise the dust stamping make a very inviting place. The white fabric for ceiling did not abate heat as expected.

The Shiftpods were everywhere. 
This is a big success for a tent designed by Christian Weber long time burner
Here at Camp Eastern Light, first timers from China


  

Clam Six Pack tent, normally a shelter for ice fishing, it does not have a ground tarp and reflective fabric, offers a less expensive option to the desert tailored Shiftpod.
