Tree of Ténéré - Burning Man 2017


A towering lifelike tree, Ténéré offers shade to wanderers, adventure to climbers, and infinite possibility to those gathered beneath its 25,000 LED leaves.

 

debuting at BURNING MAN 2017

In the southern Sahara desert, in a region called Ténéré, a solitary tree magically emerged from the barren sands. It was the most isolated tree on Earth.

The Tree of Ténéré became an important ceremonial gathering place for traders and travelers as they crossed the desert. It brought people together for community, ritual and rest.

It was mysteriously destroyed almost 50 years ago.

You're invited to experience this ritual anew. Impossibly real and magically alive, Ténéré gives wanderers a space for contemplation, community, creativity, and play. With your help, we'll bring it to cities and festivals around the world, starting at Burning Man 2017.
