Yesterday, November 3rd, the pyro-technitians of Second Life’s BURN2 set The Man ablaze, signalling the close of this years event is near. Naturally, your ever alert, ever on-time reporter arrived 5 minutes late and couldn’t even get near The Man perched up high in the cold desert night. And naturally The Man was already ablaze when I arrived. But [...]
VB24 – Multiverse Saturday, 12 February 2011, 8-10pm GMT a simultaneous performance on the Reaction, InWorldz, and Second Life grids Hi Guys, I guess everybody knows that the peeps from Burn2 banned Vaneeesa’s VB22 – The House with the Ocean View. Or, “moderated” it out of existence, as Mr. Moo likes to say. http://vaneeesa.com/2010/10/14/banned-by-burn2/ Anyways, [...]
Please don’t hate me you guys! I’m trying to do the right thing, but it’s hard! And it’s really hard when people you like don’t get along. Yes, the little black girl wearing the Burn2 Greeter hat is me. I guess I have two confessions to make: One is that before I agreed to be [...]

You can’t say a bad word about Burning Life ’09, and indeed Silene’s Artist Camp was all about creating on-site, learning new things, and interacting with other artists. Still, I think the bulk of ’09 was an open house of amazing stuff to go look at. Perhaps in this tight-knit 6-region Burn2 we can interact more.
BURN2 will be held October 16 – 24, as scheduled. Our Burning Man-inspired theme is “Metropolis: Civilization in the desert.”
For 2010, VB/CO will present 12 works of performance art.
What’s so amazing about a place… a space… a moment… a gift… like this crazy dwell between Bryn’s mosquito Ferris wheel and her sensorium cloud… is how capacious it is… how generous it is… and how it invites not just your brain… but also your body… to exist in resonance with it… in this time and in this space…

This year’s Burning Life theme is Evolution. Evolution is a contextual idea. Yes, we can chart it for millions of years. We can consider the watershed of the cambrian explosion, that eventually finds, among it’s far downstream rivulets, our story. But we are most often most interested in the vicinity of our story: the journey [...]
