2020 Art Theme Announced

Post by trilobyte » Sun Oct 20, 2019 1:35 am

In case you missed it in social media, the Jack Rabbit Speaks newsletter, or on the Burning Man Journal... this week Burning Man announced the 2020 art theme: The Multiverse
The 2020 Black Rock City event theme explores the quantum kaleidoscope of possibility, the infinite realities of the multiverse, and our own superpositioning as actors and observers in the cosmic Cacophony of resonant strings. It’s an invitation to ponder the real, the surreal and the pataphysical, and a chance to encounter our alternate selves who may have followed, or are following, or will follow different decision-paths to divergent Black Rock City realities. Welcome to the Multiverse!
That's just the first paragraph, you can read the rest of the theme statement over here.

For those who may be new to Burning Man, the art theme is completely optional. There will be people who dive right in and create camps, costumes and other art that plays with the idea, and there will also be people who do their own thing. The multiverse (and metaverse) are subjects I've been interested in for a long time, and I'm excited to see what kinds of things people come up with. What do you think? Like it? Love it? Hate it?

I read the Multiverse page on Wiki and know less than I started with. This topic will be a challenge to express....

Will the theme of Multiverse carry on into 2021 since 2020 is all busted to hell and back?

Probably not.
How about Ressurection or Rebirth? Maybe to easy?
