Fertility?

Fertility 2.0 - Black Rock City is a kind of Petri dish. Theme camps cling in fertile clusters to its latticework of streets, artworks tumble out of it, like pollen on the air. These nodes of interaction mutate, grow and reproduce their kind. Burning Man communities have now escaped this capsule world: our culture in a Petri dish has effloresced - it spreads across five continents. This year's art theme contemplates the tendency of any being or living system to create abundant life.

SO if this is the case What do I wear for costuming?
Do I just play with my pills and make sure I am a few days from my rag. Maybe wear a sign saying I'm fertile? I would save a ton in costume money.

This always makes me laugh, and certainly related to fertility!

Burning Man's Larry Harvey addresses the multitudes at last night's Artumnal Gathering fundraiser for the Black Rock Arts foundation, held at the gorgeous Bently Reserve in San Francisco. He also announced the theme for 2012: Fertility 2.0, presumably the result of much protracted headscratching under that famous Stetson. But once again I think Larry's nailed the zeitgeist of the day: with Planet Earth sagging under the weight of 7 billion humans, indeed we need a new idea of Be Fruitful.


Is there a valid source this info is coming from?

If I poop on the playa, is that supporting the theme? I can also toss around food scrap and coffee grounds if that helps. That way, in 2013 we'll be able to grow our own vegetables!

if that's the ending "dog scene"........no.
There's a particular scene, related to fertility and fertilization (artificial) in a pit, that, well...you'd have to see it.

NO...it means your presence is MANdatory!!!

I like the balance of Fertility & Futility. That shoulda been the theme.

I dunno. There is something about "futility" that reminds me of the old term "barren". I don't care if I fit the definition, it's not a label hung in me.

In case anyone wants the source for the info/picture, it's here.

That's the FB page of the photographer that took the original picture which is also used here in the Black Rock Arts Foundation blog.

If this happens to be the actual theme, it's gonna be a crushing irony as my SO and I will most likely have to miss this burn because we will be dealing with a one month old. I was actually hoping the timing would have shown the kid was conceived at BM, thus making Dusty the name of choice, but alas, the magic moment seems to have occurred at Decom instead.

"Fertility 2.0" is a training exercise to repopulate the Earth after the apocalypse coming a few months later.
