Remember, if you've got a great idea for one… WORK IT! Burning Man is looking for a few good altars, flesh out your ideas and get your grant/project proposals put together...
Larry Harvey & Stuart Mangrum wrote:We feel sure our theme will attract many alien Visitors, and hope this will stimulate our planet's faltering economy. To that end, we invite artists to create altars that may be placed in the vicinity of Burning Man's pavilion. These installations should be portable and easily removable from our burn circle. Participants are encouraged to contribute propitiatory offerings to these Space Age shrines. Artists are also invited to propose homemade interactive technology that may be installed on our saucer's upper Flight Deck (consult our online Art Guidelines for details).
I'll start with something I've said elsewhere… I want to see a Cargo Pants Cult! An altar to accept offerings of cargo pants (or maybe to decorate the cargo pants of participants who come with unadorned pants). Praise the many pockets, preach against empty pockets (wasting precious space) or worshipping false garments. Of course, there's bound to be offshoots and competing cults… like the Cargo Shorts Adventists or the Kilt Kult. Fun on a bun!
Your turn… go!
