THEME SUGGESTIONS FOR 2015

Carnival Of Mirrors asks three essential questions: within our media-saturated world, where products and people, consumption and communion morph into an endlessly diverting spectacle, who is the trickster, who is being tricked, and how might we discover who we really are?

For a second there I was going to suggest "Sherpas burning shit and blowing shit up" and then I stepped back a minute.....

They call those guys Ghurkas. Nepalese badasses from the word go.

For the 10th year in a row I PREDICT (not suggest) that the theme will be Donkey Fucking. So far I have been right 50% of the time.

Theme Suggestion:

The End.

I think this could actually be a good theme. It is nebulous, which a lot of the the best themes are because it leaves a wide swath of possible interpretations. It captures so much that we all fear, or look forward to. The end of a job, or the end of our life, the end of war, the end of peace, the end of a relationship, the end of childhood, the end of the world.
