The Burning Man Festival was just a few weeks ago, and we’ve been obsessing over the crazy cool artworks, installations, and sculptures that turned Nevada’s Black Rock Desert into an otherworldly playland. The gathering of more than 70,000 people had the theme of “Da Vinci’s Workshop.” Organizers asked participants to explore the similarities between 15th-century Florence and the 30-year-old festival. But some of the coolest creations were just totally random, like shoes, and gorillas and space whales. Because, at Burning Man, anything goes.

Mutant vehicle straight from Jakku that Rey probably scavenged.

Holy Rolling Teapots

An army of pink.

A pair of orcas swim the playa.

That’s a big crow.


A spaceship? A giant upside down dreidel?
