Enormous replicas of children's letter blocks are spaced around the playa, arranged in such a way that if viewed from the proper perspective they will all line up and appear to be the same size.­ From this one spot you will be able to read the message of the cubes.­

The message changed at Sunset for four consecutive days.­ The four messages were:

Perspective (Tuesday)
Earth At Risk (Wednesday)
Green the Man (Thursday)
Where Are You (Friday & Saturday)

Burning Man is yearly gathering of about 70,000 people, many from the San Francisco Bay Area, celebrating love, life, passion and art during one week in a desolated desert in Nevada.­

The event takes place each last week of august in an immense dry lakebed called Black Rock Desert.­ A temporary city is built where about everything is permitted except violence, money and commerce.­

The culmination of the event is the burning of a large human-shape figure in a giant bonfire, hence the name (Burning Man).­ The city disappears completely at the end of the week, leaving no trace.­
