The Temple of Flux Was the Festival's Largest Effigy Ever

Built in just 17 days, the Temple of Flux was the largest effigy Burning Man festival has ever had.

The Temple of Flux was inspired by the 2010 festival’s "metropolis" theme, and was made up of five enormous landforms that interlocked to create a series of canyons and caverns. It was also composed almost entirely of wood and other makeshift materials, which makes it an altogether enormous production, but not necessarily a terribly environmentally friendly one.

After standing for just 10 days, however, the gigantic effigy was finally set alight as the climactic close to the festival.
