Unlikely Burning Man 2012 Themes

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.

Unlikely Burning Man 2012 Themes

Postby Radical Self » Fri Sep 30, 2011 2:47 pm

Fellow Burners,

While we all anxiously await the theme for Burning Man 2012, let's get collectively creative and come up with some themes that are most likely NOT to be. Here are some examples:

'Bullets and Boas'

'As Seen on TV'

'Rites of Purchase'

Alright. It's all I could come up with on such short notice. I'm sure you all can do better. Now you go...

I think the name will also be changed from Burning man to Burning Sparkle Ponies. They make some CRAZY fire colors when burned at high temps!

Maybe the theme will be-
Bacon Apocalypse Now



Not so much themes-
Sparkle Pony Olympics
dance dance championship
worlds largest dress up competition
Sponsored By Proctor and Gamble ( no theme this year or any after)
SURVIVOR- Burning Man. Sparkle Pony Edition
Home, Home on the Rave.
maladroit- Burning Man is like a second job, except you pay to work there.
Burning Man is just the pre party for exodus! - fellow burner during exodus
