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, the only virtual world Regional out of more than 100 Regional groups worldwide, and the only Regional to burn the Man!
This unique virtual Regional spreads the culture and Ten Principles of Burning Man year-round in Second Life, culminating in an annual major festival of community, art and fire in the fall - a virtual echo of Burning Man itself.
It is dark - always midnight on the Fire Moon, except for the balefully glowing and flaming rings dotting the surface. We see the unmistakable dry lake bed playa underfoot. We are meant to be here, to fill this deceptively barren vista. It calls to us, entices us, challenges us.
The New Moon exerts its strange influence upon us, it comes on the eve of the Chinese New Year, the Year of the Fire Rooster. What visions fill your mind's eye? And what are you compelled to create?
