Burning Man Calendar

The 2013-2014 Burning Man Calendar was produced as a square 11x11 inch shape which doubled in length when unfolded with a single hole for hanging. This edition featured a serene silhouetted photo of man on the cover and a clean modern design.

Leaning heavily into the continued growth and activities of the Burning Man Regional Network, this was the first time a few of the month spreads only contained images from around the globe or Regional Network activities. For example, one spread included photos from the Lakes of Fire event in Michigan, the Burn in the Forest event in Vancouver, the Apogaea event in Colorado and an effigy from the Circle of Regional Effigies (CORE) projects which were built by regional groups and installed in a circle around the Man, and then burnt on a separate night for 2 years in Black Rock City.

First time an entire spread was dedicated to events or projects from the Burning Man Regional Network

For this edition of the calendar, the usable grid was presented in different formats on different spreads, some had half on top of the fold and another half below, some had the grid all vertically along the whole spread.

Deep and heartfelt gratitude to all the photographers, artists, camps, mutant vehicle owners, regional contacts, performers, artifact creators and other contributors to the project, each of whom gave permission for their work to be included and was thoroughly credited in the project and sent copies of the final product.

All but the first edition of the Burning Man Calendars were produced in partnership with designer Arin Fishkin. You can learn more about the nuances and full history of this project in this post on the Burning Man journal.
