Burning Man 2018 took place from August 26 to September 3, 2018 in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada. Participants joined in the effort to co-create Black Rock City, a temporary metropolis dedicated to art and community.
Once a year, tens of thousands of people gather in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert to create Black Rock City, a temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. In this crucible of creativity, all are welcome.
Burning Man is an unusual festival. It’s a city wherein almost everything that happens is created entirely by its citizens, who are active participants in the experience.
I, Robot, first published in 1950, is a collection of short science fiction stories by author Isaac Asimov.
It is perhaps most famous for the three essential laws embedded deep in every robot’s positronic brain.
1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
2. A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
— Isaac Asimov, I, Robot
This year Burning Man Festival invited participants to use their native genius to create expressive robots of all kinds.
