Conception – a time to celebrate beginnings, and a time to celebrate the future, whether it is that of Burning Man, our experience with it, or the people we have and will come to know through it. How did we find these crazy folk we call Burners, how did we become Burners, and do we see a future Burning bright?

Sometimes it is good to look back at where we came from, so we can see how far we have come. A long, long, long, long, long time ago where we live now, looked much like our moon. So as we look back at the start of the flame this year, let’s do it under the stars on a landscape just waiting to come to life.

And so we call to the creators, builders and artists of Second Life: Bring this barren playascape to life. Ancient meteor showers pockmarked the playa full of craters – claim one (choose a size ranging from 28m to 36m in diameter), then conceive, build, and enliven this landscape. Will you create a past, present or future in your crater?

Some craters will overlap – make your Communal Effort, finding new friends by getting close. Recycling bits of past builds is encouraged if you choose to look back. We love recycling! Perhaps you’ll show where we are now, the present. For the future, give us some Radical Self-Expression! Make something new in your crater, something ‘out there,’ ‘far out there’, far into the future. Where are we headed? Or, what is headed here?
