With Burning Man drawing to an official close over the weekend, citizens of the playa have begun their descents from the transformational week long affair. They’ve taken home life-changing experiences and mental snapshots of some of the world’s most mind-bending, forward-thinking art.

Fortunately for festival goers who were unable to make this year’s gathering on the dusty terrain of Black Rock Desert, the art of Burning Man never ceases to make it’s way into the mainstream consciousness (thanks largely to Instagram). From the iconic Burning Man himself to the 2018 Galaxia temple, designed by Arthur Mamou-Mani, which saw their final effigy late yesterday evening, attendees were able to take some impressive snapshots of Burning Man’s iconic art installations.
