Critical Massive's main lawn
This is the main lawn area, where many of Critical Massive's theme camps were set up.
The Assimilator is a weather balloon from which hangs a video camera feeding live wireless video to a screen in a nearby art car.
In keeping with Burning Man tradition, some Critical Massive attendees set up impressive infrastructure. Here, two 60-foot parachutes strung together created a massive amount of shade for dozens of people.
