This incredible two-floor Victorian house on wheels – Neverwas Haul is the creation of Major Catastrophe (Shannon O’Hare). Noteworthy, it took the project designer and builder, and a crew of 12 working about 6 months to build it. According to them, for the house they used 75% of recycled materials. Meanwhile, Shannon O’Hare was designing and building themed-park structures around the country for 25 years. Creating his installations the artist used to visit a variety of Renaissance Faires from Ohio to California. He lives in Vallejo, CA and runs his own art and home remodeling business. The Neverwas Haul continues to attend Burning Man as well as numerous festivals and happenings around California.

First of all, Burning Man has become a populist phenomenon, where participants set up a temporary “city,” creating their own community, for a few days. ‘‘No spectators’’ is the motto, and people are expected to interact with one another, produce and display artwork and fashion, play music, dance, do spontaneous performances—as long as they actively participate. The 50-foot-high, neon-lit Man towers over Black Rock City until the climax of the festival on Saturday night.
While more than 15,000 desert dwellers watch, the figure is ignited and the Man becomes a fiery blaze, with previously loaded fireworks shooting out of him into the night sky. The next day, participants dismantle their city and leave the desert as they found it, with no trace of the Burning Man festivities—until the next year.
