Burning Man unveils next year’s temple

Have a first peek at Geordie Van Der Bosch's The Temple of Direction...

Burning Man have unveiled its temple for next year.

Created by Geordie Van Der Bosch, art installation the Temple of Direction was selected from a longlist of submissions.

In a statement, organisers said: "We explore a spectrum of design submissions from our community’s artists and builders, and we approach our decision with the goal of creating a special physical space on playa for Black Rock City’s citizens to share their reflections. The Temple of Direction was chosen for its elegant simplicity, and we can’t wait to see his vision come to life."

The temple is a linear space, which captues "the elegance and austerity" of the torii gates at Fushimi Inari Shrine in Japan, where Van Der Bosch has previously lived.

Burning Man will return to Black Rock Desert in Nevada across August 25th to September 2nd, 2019.

In October, it was revealed that two Australian bureaucrats spent nearly £15,000 of taxpayer money to go to this year's Burning Man.

Back in September, Diplo shared footage from his series of sets at this year's festival.
