An incredible sequence of shots of a derrick burning, built as part of an art installation called Crude Awakening. The artistic brainchild of Karen Cusolito and Dan Das Mann, it is an homage to societies reliance on fossil fuels and the downfall it can bring about.

Created for Burning Man 2007, an art festival in Nevada that creates a city and then leaves no trace when they leave a week later, the art installation happened in three acts – creation, destruction and rebirth. They built an oil derrick as the central player with nine foot metallic figures surrounding it in positions of worship.
