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

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  August 4, 2015 12 PM SLT 
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!
