One of Burning Man’s Ten Principles is Radical Self Expression.
As part of that Self Expression, Burning Culture includes nudity and decorated nudity.
For BURN2 we see it as an opportunity to celebrate Burning Culture while watching The Man burn under low lag conditions! We do this by showing up with Avatars in just a skin, no prim attachments, HUDs or scripts at all, so we have minimal Avatar Rendering Cost (ARC) slowing down the Virtual Playa server. First tried in 2010, this event was an instant hit. We’re bringing it back again to the Virtual Playa with the Skin Burn on November 12th!
To get to the Skin Burn sim, BurningMan – Silver Seed you must be in the Skinburn Group and have activated the Group tag. To get the Group Tag you have to go through a check to make sure you are low lag in just your skin. All the details are below! Hope to see you all there.
