Press Release
BURN2 2015: Carnival of Mirrors 
Press Contact: ​ iSkye Silverweb 

This year’s theme is about mirrors and masks, mazes and merger. It will be a kind of magic  show that takes the form of an old­fashioned carnival. This Carnival of Mirrors asks three  essential questions: within our media­saturated world, where products and people,  consumption and communion morph into an endlessly diverting spectacle, who is the  trickster, who is being tricked, and how might we discover who we really are?

Classic carnivals, as theaters of illusion, upheld a very strict dividing line that separated  carnies, cast as showmen, from members of a naïve public who were labeled chumps and  suckers, marks and rubes. Our carnival, however, will perform an even more subversive trick  — its motto is Include the Rube. The wall dividing the observer from observed will disappear,  as by an act of magic; through the alchemy of interaction, everyone at once can be the carny  and the fool.

With great glee and inspired excitement, we announce the upcoming BURN2: Carnival of  Mirrors. The event will take place October 17­-25, 2015, culminating in the Burning of the Man  on the 24th and the Temple Burn on the 25th. Going into this season of preparation, the  annual plot sale opens, along with the Plot Lottery and Juried Art Camp Applications. This  year we will gift MORE free plots in the Plot Lottery! And prices for the plot sale are LOWER!

Get all the information you need about the Plot Lottery and Juried Art Camp applications by  going to ​http://www.burn2.org and finding the link to the desired application form in the menu  at left under “Carnival of Mirrors.”  Read all the information on the form including the  guidelines and Ten Principles before you submit your application.

Builder guidelines are available at ​ http://www.burn2.org/Builderguidelines – playa aesthetics mirroring the Black  Rock Desert are in effect for this event.

You can purchase a plot for BURN2 at the kiosks on the playa. In the spirit of the theme, your  receipt will be in the form of a wearable mask. Prices are as follows, and we are happy to  note the prices are lower than last year:

  • L$2500 = 512sqm, 117 LI 
  • L$5000 = 1024sqm, 234 LI 
  • L$10000 = 2048sqm, 468 LI 
  • L$20000 = 4096sqm, 936 LI   

Think about the mirrors, masks, mazes and mergers, let the word “Carnival” evoke inspiration  in your creative mind, then come, participate, in this fiercely fun and fiery fiesta!

There will be friendly and helpful greeters at the gates ready to help out and ensure that everyone has a nice welcoming experience. Let’s celebrate Balance!

Balance – 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.

Spread the word about BURN2 Burnal Equinox 2015: Balance and come over this weekend. :)

Today is BURN2 Caravansary Grand Opening Day

It’s grand opening day! 

BURN2 2014

BURN2 Caravansary 2014 opens officially today at 12pm SLT/PDT in Second Life through until Sunday 28th October at 11:30pm SLT/PDT. This year it’s going to be the best ever and bigger than before!

The annual event will take place at the Burning Man regions in Second Life as usual and again it’s resident community supported for the 4th year running. As many know BURN2 is an extension of the Burning Man festival in real life and it’s all virtual in Second Life. This year there will be a caravansary that occupies the crossroads of a dreamland with many exciting places to explore and discover. There will be live performances, live shows, lamplighters, rangers, greeters, fire and much more.

BURN2 Caravansary Theme

This year, we will create a caravansary that occupies the crossroads of a dreamland: a bazaar of the bizarre, wherein treasures of every sort, from every land and age, flow in and out to be flaunted, lost, exploited and discovered. This is not a tourist destination, but a home for travelers who come here bearing gifts. Amid the twisting and the turnings of its souk, participants will come upon an inexhaustible array of teeming goods and unexpected services.

Anyone may pose as ‘merchant’ here, and anyone may play a ‘customer’, but nothing in this strange emporium shall have a purchase price — no quid, no pro, no quo — no trade at all will be allowed in this ambiguous arcade. According to a rule of desert hospitality, the only thing of value in this ‘marketplace’ will be one’s interaction with a fellow being.

Our desert inn will also be a scene of luxury and cultivated ease. An apron of fine carpets will spread out beneath the shade of portals that surround a courtyard. Here, travel-wearied pilgrims may relax, inventing pastimes as they watch the whirling world go by.

Workers of great wonders will be welcome here; fakirs, dancers, sadhus, seers and potentates will throng through this performance space, like figures that adorn the fabric of a silk brocade. The sounds of finger cymbals, chimes, and music of acoustic instruments will fill the air.

By night, bathed in the lambent glow of lanterns gently swaying overhead, fire spinners will perform around the Burning Man. This year’s Man will rise directly from the desert floor and tower many stories high. Its massive torso will evoke a tiered pagoda; its ornate head will be a lamp that welcomes people home.

Bystanders become participants; participants share in the burning, spinning cacophony on the virtual Playa.
