Burning Man has its roots in a bonfire ritual started by founder Larry Harvey, Jerry James and a number of their friends who met during the summer solstice in 1986 at San Francisco's Baker Beach. During the bonfire, the group of friends burned a nine foot long wooden man, as well as smaller wooden dog, in what they dubbed an act of radical self-expression. The bonfire itself was inspired by sculptor Mary Grauberger's solstice bonfire gatherings which were held before 1986. Larry Harvey, whose girlfriend was Grauberger's friend, decided to continue this tradition and thus the event known today as Burning Man was born.
The effigy, dubbed The Man, also grew in size, going from eight to fifteen feet in a year. In 1990, a similar event was organized by John Law (of the Cacophony Society) and Kevin Evans, at the Black Rock Desert, in Nevada. This site, located over a hundred miles north of Reno, became home to an event that slowly stared growing in stature. It also spawned a smaller event, known as Desert Siteworks. This event was held over the course of several weeks at some of the fertile hot springs in the desert. The organizers of these different events joined up and Burning Man was born as an event.
By 1996, more than eight thousand people were coming to see The Man burn, as well as to take part in a slew of other exciting and creative activities. The event also became a pedestrian/bicycle/art-car-only event and was then moved to the nearby Fly Ranch. Ownership and control of the event is also being transferred to the Burning Man Project, a not-for-profit organization, from the original Black Rock City LLC company.
Today, The Man stands at forty feet, and the event has even gone on to earn an Emmy Award nomination. It is broadcast on certain channels and retains much of its original principles. These principles are radical inclusion, decommodification, gifting, radical self-expression and self-reliance, communal effort, leaving no trace, civic responsibility, immediacy and participation. Many have described the event as more of a global cultural movement. The event can be attended live this year after ordering Burning Man - Full Event tickets.
