Friday, March 27th through Sunday, March 29th, inclusive, marks the 2015 BURN2 Burnal Equinox event, which will take place at Burning Man Deep Hole.
The theme for this year’s event is Balance, an explanation of which is provided in the BURN2 blog post which accompanied the announcement, and which reads in part:
Equinox is the time when the day and night are of equal length, it is also the start of both Spring and Autumn. In the virtual world we can mix all things together, so we can have bats flying down to sip the nectar from the new spring flowers in the daytime, or autumn leaves transforming into butterflies at night. As always our only limitation is our imagination.
Seventeen artists are offering builds in the region, all focus on the subject of balance, and all wide-ranging in interpretation and presentation, making touring them a fascinating experience, as they touch on the physical, the spiritual, the mental, the emotional nature of having, discovering, finding or even losing, balance.
As well as the art installations, the weekend will seen a range of events taking place, starting with the opening by the Lamplighters and d-oo-b, and will continue through the weekend with a mix of live musicians and artists and DJs, and also include displays and shows at some of the installations themselves. To keep abreast of everything that is going on, be sure to check-out the Burnal Equinox schedule of events.
So, with a weekend of activities and art awaiting you in the desert – why not hop over to Burnal Equinox and join in the celebrations and fun?
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.
