Art Theme Announcement

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.

This makes me wonder if people are going to take the theme to mean "How much pregnancy can I inflict?"

Note to self, get the snip this spring.

There'd be something oddly hilarious about seeing condoms with some kind of Fertility 2.0 icon/graphic on them, I hope someone makes that exist.

i got a GREAT deal on a batch of faulty ones, i think like half of them break or something....whatever...


i guess that means a 50-50 chance of being fertile.

kinda like the ticket process...

Poignant, considering there are way more of one gender than the other.

They have rabbits now? Did the Koreans export their genetic technology?

So, to recap, the theme is Golden Showers: Petri Dish. Got it.
Just up or still up?

Odd, because urine is (usually) sterile, but oddness has never been an issue at the event.
