Benjamin Langholz's circular staircase at Burning Man creates "an alternate reality"

Artist Benjamin Langholz created a circular staircase of stepping stones to allow revellers to tune out the immersive atmosphere at this year’s Burning Man and focus on themselves. 

Langholz arranged 27 stones in an ascending ring, supported by a central pillar and three surrounding pairs of columns, to create the installation named Stone 27.

Intended to provide a “shift into a new reality”,’ the journey up and around the elevated stones was designed to take visitors on a “floating walk to experience a moment of complete presence”.
