Giant, laser-cut glass orbs will glow at Burning Man this year




Renderings of Hybycozo's new works for Burning Man.

Burning Man - the wild weeklong festival held in Nevada's Black Rock City desert every year - is known for the spectacular, larger-than-life artwork created by attendees.

For this year's festival - which begins August 28 - the artist duo known as Hybycozo is creating a set of three glowing balls. From smallest to largest, they will be called "Marvin," "Starship Bistromath," and the "Heart of Gold."

The two California-based artists, industrial designer Sergei Beaulieu and former Google employee Yelena Filipchuk, launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the project. After less than two weeks, 310 backers had pledged over $33,000 to bring their vision to life.
