HELCO at Burning Man 1996 by Chuck Cirino

Chuck Cirino has posted his infamous HELCO video from Burning Man 1996, featuring the amazing art of SEEMEN and of course John Law coming down the zip line.

Before Burning Man was a comfortable vacation in the desert there was a wilder element afoot. In 1996 the Burning Man theme was “HELL”. In this spectacular tribute to the downfall of big business we witness what Burning Man used to be… RADICAL SELF EXPRESSION. Hans Zimmer’s awesome score from GLADIATOR helps to set the mood.

Literally speaking, that was one “hell” of a Burning Man, one I’ll never forget.
