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.

I pretty much ignored the Metropolis theme. It wouldn't be too much of a stretch to ignore yet another one if this next one is indeed "Fertility." The Rites of Passage was a good one.

Maybe instead of a man, they could have an egg that gets impregnated by a sperm on a festive night event such as Tuesday. Would they burn the fetus on Saturday?

Kokopelli is a fertility deity, usually depicted as a humpbacked flute player (often with a huge phallus and feathers or antenna-like protrusions on his head), who has been venerated by some Native American cultures in the Southwestern United States. Like most fertility deities, Kokopelli presides over both childbirth and agriculture. He is also a trickster god and represents the spirit of music.

I'm looking for a cast iron frying pan with la Virgen de Guadalupe set in relief so I can make MIRACULOUS grilled cheese for teh masses! We already wanted to leverage Marian Iconography for the Burn, so Fertility as a theme should work well. We're virgins; she's a virgin - type of thing.

I can see all kinds of interesting libations being offered at the bar for In Vitro Camp!

We had an absinthe flavor at our bar a couple years back one of our campmates made with coffee and cream. It tasted fine, but the cream would separate out in clumps and it just looked like a big bottle of semen.

Camp idea brainstorm for camp:
Large artificial flowers placed all over the playa. Pick up your bee costume at honeycomb camp. The bee that visits the largest number of flowers "wins".
