Photographer Traub captures the sacred and profane through photos of otherworldly artifacts, structures, and costumes. Filmmaker Les Blank, Burning Man founder Larry Harvey, Star Trek’s Mr. Spock, Leonard Nimoy, and beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti illuminate Traub’s unique perspective on this dynamically evolving event.

"these four segments cumulatively offer something much more satisfying than most sci-fi blockbusters. George Lucas could learn something from Pak and his predominantly Asian-American cast about creating credible characters."
- Las Vegas Mercury
"Director Greg Pak's Robot Stories is the most entertainingly humanistic robot film since Metropolis, and anyone who tells you otherwise is probably a replicant and not to be trusted around small animals and electrical outlets."
- Austin Chronicle
"In 20 years, Burning Man has grown from one man's personal bonfire on a nude beach in San Francisco to a fiery bacchanal that attracts nearly 40,000 artists, intellectuals and nonconformists"
- The San Francisco Chronicle
“Barbara Traub captures an expansive desert of everything but normality where monstrous beings of all shapes, colors and sizes congregate each year with contraptions that challenge everyday familiarity.”
