Burn Wall Street – The arson squad cometh

burning man 2012 burn wall street

Oh Burn Wall Street, we had such big plans for you. Sadly things got in the way that had nothing to do with us. This was supposed to be the biggest burn, biggest fireworks show in the history of Burning Man. You’d have to go back to Crude Awakening to find something bigger — and Black Rock FX burned that one too!

So sadly we’re stuck with the biggest structure burn and the featured part of the upcoming documentary, Spark: A Burning Man Story.

Still, we had fun, but it’s sad we could not complete the project we wanted to do and that people expected.

Burn Wall Street was a mock city with five buildings named after financial institutions that mocked the financial collapse of Wall Street in New York. The tallest building was 72 feet high. You can discover the political message elsewhere. Our role was to present a very awe inspiring burn and fireworks show.

We had a lot more fun with Anubis.
