Black Rock City is carefully organized in a giant semi-circle with grid rows that all face the open desert, and the scene of the final burning event. Malka Architecture installed their recycled cylinders, which look like giant paper towel cartons, in an open space amid the geodesic domes and art cars and half-naked participants.

Loopcamp’s was specifically oriented in a semi circle that faces directly into oncoming winds in order to take advantage of wind pressure to create a giant wind chime. Additionally, the stalwart cylinders act as a barrier to both wind and sand, giving festival goers a brief but welcome respite from the relentless forces of nature in a way that definitely stirs the soul.
