This week, an otherworldly gathering in the desert is taking place in the Black Rock Desert of Northern Nevada. A celebration of life, earth and all the incredible things we’re capable of building and creating, over the years Burning Man has served as the surrealist of settings to showcase some of the most mind-boggling and incredible art by talented young creatives. They’re not necessarily well-known or reputed artists outside of the festival, but the Burning Man Festival becomes their world stage. Some of the festival’s most impressive sculptures and installations were made in someone’s garage or backyard. Let’s check out some of the most unforgettable…
1. The Neverwas Haul

Neverwas Haul, a self-propelled 3-story Victorian House, made from 75% recycled equipment and materials, returns with new interiors, engine, and collections from its travels around the world (i.e., oddities of the Jules Verne).
The artists are a self-confessed collective of“tinkerers, gearheads, and steam bohemians who fabricate steam-powered art out of repurposed industrial detritus”.
The Neverwas Haul was designed and built as a vehicle for the Burning Man Festivals in 2006 and 2007 but these days its semi-permanently housed at Obtainium Works in Vallejo and can be rented in that venue for weddings, dinners, and other events. For the right price, the Haul can even be transported to your location.
