Mosaic Experiment is a four day all-ages camping event based on the culture and principles of Burning Man. Mosaic is a collaborative gathering of community organized and fueled by volunteers. An official Burning Man regional event, Mosaic is an interactive experience that is both everything and nothing you will expect.

Mosaic Experiment brings the artistry and energy of Black Rock City to the Midwestern region. Mosaic Experiment 2016 takes place at Reclaim, a former strip-mine in Rutland, Ohio. This land is dedicated to reclaiming, foresting, and supporting the natural environment. Mosaic Experiment is more than an event: we are a community. Experimenters are committed to a radically participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change, whether in the individual or in society, can occur only through the medium of deeply personal participation. 

Everything at Mosaic Experiment is organized and built by volunteers. With respect to the 10 Principles of Burning Man, Mosaic incorporates principles including Leave No Trace (there are no trash cans, so you’ll have to pick up after yourself and pack your trash out with you), Decommodification and Radical Self Reliance (there are no vendors, so you’ll have to bring enough food, water, and whatever else you need to survive for four days), and more.

The results of the experiment are dependent upon how you choose to participate. Mosaic Experiment is what happens when we all show up.
