Ideas for 2012 Theme

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.

Oh. Whoops.


Burning Man 1997 page wrote:The weather was nearly perfect since the wind and dust storms common to the Black Rock playa passed us by. The year's theme was Mysteria, and you can read about under Art Installations and in the Summer Newsletter.


I love how this meme about the theme being a rehash is spreading without anyone apparently checking to see what the theme actually was.

Technically the first official theme was in 1998.

It does that every year. Burners are a population prone to the overuse of "epic".
