Burning Man may be one of the unique festivals in American history. Every year since 1986, as many as 60,000 people have gathered in a makeshift village in Nevada's Black Rock Desert to celebrate art, life, and radical individuality.
Burning Man 2012 came to its awe-inspiring climax on Saturday night, as participants set fire to "The Man," a huge wooden effigy. While seeing a giant burning effigy is certainly bizarre, it's hardly the most interesting thing at the festival.
Participants are encouraged to partake in surreal art experiments, leading to some pretty trippy visuals all around. Click "Start" to see some of the most artistic, interesting, and downright insane things at Burning Man 2012.
