BURN2: Conception announced

logoJune 22nd-29th will mark BURN2: Conception, a time to celebrate the past, present and future. The e-mail press release announcing the event reads in part:

Sometimes it is good to look back at where we came from, so we can see how far we have come. A long, long, long, long, long time ago, where we live now looked much like our Moon. So as we look back at the start of the flame this year, let’s do it under the stars on a landscape just waiting to come to life.

The BURN2 team go on to extend an open invitation to artists and builders to apply for a place on the cratered playa, a reflection of this image of a young and new Earth, and create a vision of the past or the present or the future and help to bring the barren landscape to life.

Available craters range from 28 to 32 metres in diameter, and some overlap with one another to encourage people to develop communal builds, whether they know each other or are meeting for the first time. For those looking back, the recycling of parts of old builds seen in the playa is encouraged. Those looking to the future are encouraged to think “far out” into the future and to where we may be heading – or what may already be out there, heading our way …

Those wishing to participate in BURN2: Conception, are invited to read the Builder’s Guidelines and then, complete the application form. All applications my be submitted no later than Friday May 16th, 2014.

About BURN2

BURN2 is an extension of the Burning Man festival and community into the world of Second Life. It is an officially sanctioned Burning Man regional event, and the only virtual world event out of more than 100 real world Regional groups and the only regional event allowed to burn the man.

The BURN2 Team operates events year around, culminating in an annual major festival of community, art and fire in the fall – a virtual echo of Burning Man itself.
