TITLE: Shibari – Art Installation
The very large female model is in Shibari bondage surrounded by photos of Shibari examples at Burning Man and other.
In Japanese, “Shibari” simply means “to tie”. The contemporary meaning of Shibari describes an ancient Japanese artistic form of rope bondage.
Shibari style rigging creates geometric patterns and shapes with rope that contrast beautifully with the human body’s natural curves. The ropes and their texture provide contrast to smooth skin and curves. In Shibari, the model is the canvas, the rope is the paint and brush, and the rigger is the rope artist.

TITLE: “4 Elements” by Big City Orchestra
“4 Elements” is an immersive audio-visual experience created for BURN2 2017 “RADICAL RITUAL” by Ninah Puchkina & ubkat Ormega. All sounds have been excerpted from the original collection of Big City Orchestra and UBUIBI archives. There are also replicas of handmade collages and paintings throughout the build from our own collection. In this installation “4 Elements” we have conceptualized the four elements of the Universe (Earth, Air, Water, Fire) through the medium of sound and vision. As you walk through the installation, there are many things to touch as well as hear, and in addition, there are some hidden areas which will only be revealed with patience and time. Please take your time to absorb the different areas for the 4 main elements in the center chamber. You can also experience the front and back chambers by taking part in a gong and metal bowl ceremony, or sit comfortably on a meditation cushion and focus on the dream machines (patterned after the original designs of Brion Gysin).

TITLE: Something in the Way She Moves
This build celebrates that which is uniquely feminine, using tampons and reds. There is a celebration circle on the platform for dancing or meditating. One sculpture is a running woman to demonstrate strength of women, the other sculpture is a woman with her head on her knees vulnerable to the world. Women are magic in a way, it is only with their monthly cycle that human life moves onward. Everyone has a mother, the ultimate connection. If broken or harmed it leaves a scar on the child for life. Celebrate the Girl the Maiden the Mother & the Crone. Welcome her in your life.

TITLE: Starbuccaneers (two locations)
While it is based on a freebie joke shop, the message is real. Consumer culture is running rampant. When people are willing to survive on 25 cent ramen just so they can buy a cup of $5 coffee because of the status it brings. Starbucks are a bunch of pirates, stealing your money with overpriced coffee. And to press the point further, there is a Starbuccaneers across the street from the original.
ARTIST NAME: Snowlord
TITLE: “All Paths Lead to Home”
The center of the build is the card drawn when the question arose of what to build this year. The card is “Home”.
The card represents a homecoming of the soul, of finding your tribe, of coming home; nourishing and facilitating growth.
Home doesn’t have to be where you grew up; family doesn’t always mean your birth family.
Family are people who share the same core values and path. Home can mean a place you have yet to visit or experience, but once there, it feeds your soul in a way giving you no doubt that you are “home”.
ARTIST NAME: SuperSuz (Miss Suzanne Super Sweet)
Experience Dadaraism at BURN2 Radical Ritual.
Dadara is an interactive artist from Amsterdam, Holland.
He has created many art projects for Burning Man.
This year, you will experience yet another reality…of Solipmission. Super Suz, the build artist for the rendition, met Dadara while interviewing him for her podcast. She was so inspired that she brought his Solipmission from Black Rock City to BURN2.
Three burners walked into the box at the beginning of Burning Man’s week and did not leave it the entire time.
Visiting participants entered the box and described their own reality of Burning Man for themselves. As they did, the artists living in the box painted what they had not seen before- Burning Man, 2017.
All the time seeing through the mind’s eyes of the visitors, Dadara and two other artists experienced a rich and rewarding burn.
On the last weekend, the artists entered real reality of Burning Man to watch the sun rise on the playa and see the temple burn.
Check out the following media placed around the build for you to enjoy and learn about the art concept. .

TITLE: Crust Ritual
I went for a long bike ride one day to think about radical ritual and what it meant to me. There are so many rituals we do in our life…and the first one I can remember as a child was brushing my teeth. Every day, once in the morning & once before bed….whether I had a good day or I had a bad day…whether it rained or the sun shone. There is comfort in a ritual like this one, it is predictable, routine, and comfortable. I had a dream where many teeth were escaping from a toothpaste tube. The combination of those thoughts is how I decided what to build for my radical ritual.
