The Big Empty: The Sublimity of Playaspace


In my introductory post I mentioned an interest in the liminal potency inhering in the physical conditions of Nevada’s Black Rock Desert playa, a “space” that is transposed to a multitude of locations worldwide. I addressed the sublimity of playaspace in an article in the recent edition of the Journal for the Study of Religion, Nature and Culture: At Home in the Big Empty, Burning Man and the Playa Sublime

Among the questions asked there: Has Burning Man become dispossessed of its transformative potency the more distant it has migrated from its sublime origins?
