Right now, september 2nd, Burning Man 2014 Art Festival is going down in the desserts of Nevada. This is not your typical party. This is a week-long annual event of insanity where every desire, idea and feeling evolves into a collective bonfire making the earth itself respond. So why would CultureNordic care about this event? Does it relate to the Nordics? No. Not until now at least… A Vikingship has been seen sailing in the fogs of dust and sand. The Vikings are truly having a revival this year: The Vikings series from HBO, New research about Inuits, the possibility to buy your own Vikingship and the recent findings of a Viking Ship in America (the last one was a hoax though (but still!)).
Have no fear – The Vikings are here! and are here to stay… Find your favourite Viking Jewellery or accessory from the Viking Ship Museum of Denmark.
Burning Man is a complete bucket of insanity and we love it. This is why we’ll release a small movie later this year by photographer Jacob Møller who right now is visiting the festival of 2014.
A Burning Man
The observant viewer might have noticed that the Viking Ship is sailing backwards. Well… Welcome to Burning Man.
