The beautiful 2009 Burning Man poster, by artists Corey and Catska Ench, portrays evolution as a fantasia of related patterns.
Trippy! Is that a Haeckel-style radiolarian right below the brain? I think it is.
That’s my guess too Emily! I love Haeckel’s radiolaria – they look so much like something Buckminster Fuller would have come up with.

Trippy indeed! It reminds of Rick Griffin’s posters, circa 1969.
You have inspired this Australian that she needs to one day book a trip in order to be part of the Burning Man Festival.
Is it possible to buy a Burning Man Evolution 2009 poster? I went last year and really wanted to find one to remember my first trip to Burning Man.
