Art at Burning Man

“Monumental Mammoth” is made of steel, discarded car parts, rusting aluminum siding and spinning clock parts.

Burning Man, the annual festival held in Nevada that congregates artists to dance, play, and create fantastical installations, has seen many new public arts this year. My favourite is “Mammoth”, produced by a 16 year old girl Tahoe Mack who was frustrated with the piling wastes near her home in Las Vegas and decided to use the scrap metal for this art piece. As a passionate environmentalist, I really appreciate the artist thoughtfully choosing the material and sculpting an eye-catching mammoth that will help visitors remember her message.
