Last year, the COVID-19 pandemic required burning man to cancel their annual event in black rock city nevada. the gathering, which sees 70,000 burners erect a city in the middle of the desert and explore various forms of artistic self-expression, is still uncertain about its luck this year. the good news is that its organizers have been working on a new permanent space — the fly ranch.
Back in 2016, the burning man project bought fly ranch, a 3,800-acre ranch a few miles away from black rock city with the idea of creating a year-round sustainable and awe-inspiring space. in 2020, they partnered with the land art generator initiative (LAGI) and launched a competition asking the burning man community to join in co-creating this space.
