Burning Man 2009 Poster, Street Names, and Black Rock City on Google Earth

The Burning Man 2009 “Evolution” poster is now available from the Burning Man website with stunning art from Cory and Catska.

The street names have also been posted and I think they are particularly good this year. See the full 2009 Black Rock City layout here. For those non-burners out there, during the event Black Rock City is laid out like a clock, with the man at the center. Streets are laid out in concentric circles and along times of the day, from 10 o’clock to 2 o’clock. The streets that are part of the concentric circle grid change names every year according to the theme. They always stay in alphabetical order, and the Esplanade is the first promenade/boardwalky sort of street before the open playa. Thus, it is extremely easy to find your way around in Black Rock City because you can always pinpoint your address in the clock. For example, your camp might be at “6:30 and Adapt” (Adapt would be the first street off the Esplanade.)


2009 Black Rock City Streets:

Esplanade
Adapt
Biology
Chaos
DNA
Extinct
Fossil
Genome
Hominid
Inherit
Jurassic
Kinship
Lineage

Center Camp ring road: Evolution

I think during the event everyone should call “C” street “Creationism,” just to get people riled up, given the whole “Evolution” theme and all.

If you like playing around with Google Earth, you can download data sets from the past three years of Burning Man with 3-D models of art pieces and theme camps done in Google Sketch-Up. Get it here.
