This time lapse video shows 5 weeks of Burning Man 2011 in 5 minutes. It covers the entire event—from set up to everyone leaving—at about 3 hours every second. It's like watching a disease spread on the face of the Earth.
The nighttime part seems to be the most fun with crazy lights and fires burning abound while the day time sequences look hot, dusty and hot and dusty. Does this time lapse video capture the soul of Burning Man or do you have to be up close to partake on the crazy? [Playa Time via Laughing Squid]
