Burning Man

Burning Man has announced the central installation for 2024, which is called “The Temple of Together.” The design was proposed by Caroline Ghosn, who is the first BIPOC female Temple lead artist. The proposal draws inspiration from neo-gothic religious architecture, Art Deco styles, and Lebanese Khaizaran weaving techniques to create a symbol of unity and respect.

Located in the Black Rock Desert, the structure is 94 feet in diameter and 70 feet tall, and it depicts hands joined in prayer as a symbol of common spirituality, unity, and humility. The installation is covered in reed weaved using Khaizaran traditional techniques, as a tribute to the designer’s childhood memories. Caroline Ghosn was motivated to design the Temple after overcoming her own multi-generational trauma and illness battle.

“Some of my life experiences were so deeply painful and challenging that I broke apart and put myself back together again with as much love as I could muster. That heartbreak is now inextricably linked with my creativity and my creations, and my deep passion for exploring unifying themes of our human condition, such as grief and self-reckoning (and the remembering that it takes to heal).” states Carolina Ghosn.

The Burning Man is a week-long event held in the desert every year that focuses on community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. The next event will take place between Sun, Aug 25, 2024 – Mon, Sep 2, 2024.
