space shuttle - burning man 2013

The Disco Space Shuttle art car was designed and built by Seth Miller, Eric Ojard, Davin Miyoshi, Bryan Shultz and friends.­ It was built and is currently docked in a warehouse in Treasure Island next to many Burning Man art cars and installations.­

For more info about this art car, go to www.­facebook.­com/­pages/­The-Disco-Space-Shuttle/­2030268930.­.­.­.

There are several space shuttle art cars.­ This one is a truck with a glowing space shuttle outline, so during daytime, it just looks like a truck.­

Those art cars are heavily decorated and customized vehicles that are used during the Burning Man festival.­

Most art cars are not street-legal, but some are, and they can be spotted occasionally on the road or on city streets.­

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.­
