Seasonal Perceptions 2019

Winter Burn 2019 @ Burn2: Invitation to Participate

You are invited to be a part of the next Burn2 regional event, our Winter Burn, set to take place January 25-27 of this year. You will find that the Deep Hole playa shows evidence of the different weather conditions of the North and South Hemisphere – snowy in the north, sandy in the south – to reflect the current weather in these parts of the world at this time.

For builders, we offer a choice of the following:

  • Being part of a collaborative build team of up to six individuals to create an art installation;
  • Building on a 20m x 20m plot;
  • If building on your own plot you are invited to also be part of a Ten Principles Hunt.

Full details about these options and signup form can be found at: https://burn2.org/seasonalperceptions-builders.

For performers, a self-signup sheet is currently available on the top left corner of the front page of this website.  Performers can choose to use the main stage or if you are a performance troupe with your own stage set, there will be space provided near the main stage for your performance. For questions and if you would like to help host at the stage, please contact Cuga Rajal in world.

The Fashionistas will bring a fashion show to the virtual playa as well! Interested in being a Burner model? Check out this page: https://burn2.org/burn2fashionistas, then contact Vickie Maidstone in world – don’t be afraid to show off your wildly creative outfit designs!

Of course we like to burn stuff, right? There will be a weather machine on the playa and it is gleefully doomed to BURN!

If you have any questions contact Event Lead Cuga Rajal. Below is a description of the winter burn event theme, Seasonal Perceptions.

For those who simply plan to attend and enjoy the music and art at this virtual Regional of Burning Man, mark your calendars: January 25-27!


Theme: Seasonal Perceptions

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 are 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!”
