Abstract: This thesis is a description and analysis of ethnographic data I collected while acting as a participant observer with the Burning Man Project's Department of Public Works (DPW) in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada. I attempt to thoroughly describe the inner workings of this small group of people who are committed to building Black Rock City (BRC), the physical manifestation of the Burning Man Project. I describe the ways in which the DPW confronts this seemingly insurmountable task by elucidating the challenges and benefits of the project, the environment, and unique social realm. I attempt to identify and analyze the values, beliefs, and practices of the DPW in order to gain a deeper understanding of how the DPW community is established and maintained. I hope that this study of a small, non-traditional working community will contribute to the current anthropological scholarship concerning work and its effects on humans in various social contexts.
