Black Rock City Honoraria Program recipient, “Fragments” is a monumental mirror installation designed by Marc Ippon de Ronda for Burning Man 2019. It echoes an Old Legend told of the Black Rock Desert:

“It is said that before the Age of Human Kind, a powerful giant was given a magic mirror by a goddess that allowed him to see into the future. Frightened by what he could foresee he broke the mirror into a thousand fragments which fell from the sky and landed in the desert floor. The sand and winds blew and the pieces began to emerge as mankind too slowly emerged out of obscurity. When thereafter discovered, the mythical site was employed as a magical place for meditation and wisdom. And it is said that the first light of sunrise seen from the top of the highest fragment will bring infinite power and knowledge to the one that visits the temple.”
