Re: Suggestions for Easy Art Project Created by High Schoole

What about some super massive mosaic type piece?

Students create the overall design and can be responsible for individual pieces. A sort of coming together of individual effort into one giant piece that both reflects their individual creativity and their collective effort.

Re: This Year's theme sucks.

Seriously? Fertility 2.0? Most of my yawns have the yawns and the others fell asleep an hour ago. I guess I'm not an artist as I can think of nowhere to go with that and I'm usually a pretty abstract thinker. Maybe 2 bottles of Robitussin would get the neurons firing. Ffffft, ding. I'm going to sta...

Sigh... Was trying to link directly to the part where jesus tells the mormons to start fucking so they can make big mormon families.

Really would have been appropriate to the theme.

Re: how does the "carry over" work?

Keep track of your card! :) I don't believe there are provisions to make changes to registrations after you hit the submit button. If something does happen, you'd want to try and contact Participant Services at partiserv(at)burningman(dot)com with the specifics to see if something can be done. Than...

Re: how does the "carry over" work?

Hey trilo,

Will there be a method by which one can change credit card info or have more than one card after registration? I'm envisioning a problem where my card is lost or stolen and I need to replace it.

I'm sorry BMOrg but this new system is still very upsetting. Basically, people have 4 months from the last burn now to raise money to buy their ticket for the next burn. If you don't have the money in January, right after the holidays, then you're screwed and have to buy tickets at the highest pric...

I'm trying to understand why they dd it this way instead of the obvious non-transferable ticket with single tier pricing. Too much infrastructure needed to print tickets?
