BURN2 Skin Burn 2019 Starts Saturday 26th October


The Burn2 Skin Burn event takes place tomorrow on Saturday 26th October 2019 in Second Life. The first burn starts at 1pm SLT and the second burn starts at 6pm SLT.

The check in opens two hours before each burn. Everyone is welcome to participate and have fun.

The Man will be burning again but this time everyone will be in their best low lag form to see it. It’s a low lag burn!.

WHY DO WE DO THIS?
We recognise that some of us may have had difficulty seeing the Man burn last Saturday – lag is a fact of life with all the partying and the range of lag generated in the sims.

Thus, we become more radically inclusive by expending a bit of communal effort and “slimming down” to just skins and system layers, It helps reduce sim lag (BURN2 sims) and also client lag (your computer’s resources and those of avatars around you).

The location will be given out via the BurningMan 2.0 group notices tomorrow and on the Burn2 blog.

Here are the full details.

Winter Burn 2019: Seasonal Perceptions

Opening 6:00pm SLT, Friday 25 January 2019

BURN2, Deep Hole

Seasonal Perceptions: Theme for Burn2’s Winter Burn Event

Perception — the ability to see, hear, or become aware of something through the senses.

This is particularly important as we move through the seasons… especially the holidays. ¬†However, our perceptions are affected by our environment… the things and people around us. ¬†Even the weather! At this time of year, one person might be shoveling the snow off his driveway while another might spend the day surfing the waves off the coast of Australia!

But it is also influenced by our imaginations.  Michael Whelan, a world-renowned artist, once did a painting of his young daughter who loved playing in the sandbox.  What he did differently is depict his daughter wearing a spacesuit and playing in a lunar sandbox!

Our perceptions ares a driving force in how we interact with the world around us. ¬†But imagination is also a strong influencer. Given all that, how would you perceive the seasons? ¬†Would you reflect the environment around you… or imagine something completely off the wall and different? ¬†Show us your “Seasonal Perceptions!”

Lamplighters will help to open the event with a walk-on from the Welcome Area to the main stage.

Artists and builders are invited to sign up for a plot (limited number, first come first served). We also have a collaborative build area set aside for Burners who would like to join a team with other creatives to build to theme. Signup is available at https://burn2.org/seasonalperceptions-buildsignup. On this form, one can indicate interest in the collaborative team or a single plot. There is also an opt-in available to be part of the Ten Principles Hunt if signing up for a single plot.

As for performers – live singers, group acts and DJs – watch for the self-signup to play at Burn2 in the next few days. If you know you are interested, you can contact Cuga Rajal inworld, until the signup sheet is available.

The Weather Machine will have its place at the center of the playa, an interactive build gleefully doomed to burn!

Mark Your Calendar and SHARE the News!

We look forward to welcoming Home Burners and community, to explore the builds and enjoy the music that will fill the air over the playa. The BURN2 Calendar at http://www.burn2.org/calendar will fill up quickly as performers sign up.

The sounds of drums, music, sultry voices, even primal screams…

Here in the dog days of summer in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s nice to have something to look forward to. It’s the season of open-air concerts, pool or beach parties, all kinds of reasons to have a party. Even the Southern Hemisphere can look forward to events to warm things up a bit.

Well, BURN2 is no exception. Coming up the first weekend in August, we have Burnstock, the second time we’ve had this happening. Last year was such fun, we’re doing it again!¬†

Mark your calendars and join us – there will be more than just music going on – races, games, THUNDERDOME… be there! Yes, we have, ahhh, facilities too! BYOTP
