Burning Man effigy. 1993
In 1993, the burning man effigy stood on the ground and there were no fence around it during the “burn”. At that time it was simply raised with a rope by people passing by.

The Burning Man and its crane. 2004
Since 1998 the man has been placed on a pedestal that’s getting bigger and bigger every year, raising the man above its city as the dominant icon, representing…. It’s a stark contrast with the first 12 years when b/w 1986 and 1997 the man was still raised by people with a rope, engaging the crowd in the process of making rather than spectating, a slogan still very important in Burning Man’s organization communications today, but less in the event’s reality.

Poster of Dust & Illusions
Burning Man effigy. 1993
The Burning Man effigy is wearing a smiley on that picture. It’s a real picture taken by Heather Shirkey in 1996 in the middle of the night. John Law and friends placed a smiley face inside the head of the man, with an intermittent light that would turn it on and off. The smiley was lit up in the middle of the week randomly, of course all those still awake noticed, and Larry Harvey asked for the smiley to be taken down right away… it wasn’t good in those days to make fun of the symbol. Still isn’t today. You’ll notice on the higher resolution version of the poster that the title Dust & Illusions is placed on top of a satellite picture of the encampment created by the 50,000 participants, in the form of a open circle.
