Burn 2 opens Saturday the 17th at 12:00 p.m. with the Lamplighter Procession. The event calendar is here. It looks both well-organized and fun, the most impressive Burn 2 I’ve seen yet. At the Welcome Home arrival area, just follow the signs. There’s a map, a station to pick up water and clothes and you’re on your way.The balloon tours and other rides weren’t functional yet on Press Day but it looks well set up for ease of getting around. I saw at least one Art Tour bus stop while I was walking around. The tour schedule shown above is near the Department of Mutant Vehicles.In previous years I simply wandered around enjoying myself and didn’t read anything about the celebration. This year I read a notecard indicating that there are 16 juried and invited artists. There were SLurls given with each avatars name and I’ll be blogging a bit about that this week. I really liked the installations I checked out briefly.The theme looks more cohesive to me this year and I saw many things I want to explore further.I started out intending to take fairly good notes but there were some rides to try out, free gifts ( like Fear and Loathing gestures and a wearable snake ) and things to play with. As always, with anything I post about, the idea is for avatars to go visit and check things out for themselves. The photos are for a bit of recognition, memories and documentation.The Festival of Masks in the Frog Pond area especially drew me in.On Friday, there were some places where I could fly and some where I could not. I saw one area installed by a friend and will pay closer attention to the avatar names associated with the art during the week. This is an especially intriguing view for me, with the installation behind it showing in the background. The Carnival of Mirrors is available to visit for just about a week.
