Smurf Planet - Revival

Hundreds of years ago, The Great Smurf approached a wild-eyed group of forest-dwellers in a lucid, vibrant vision. He commanded them to pack everything on the last week in the eighth month of the third year and travel to the desert. There, he told them, “You will join thousands in a celebration that will eclipse any you’ve ever known.” Accepting their mission, the disciples began preparing for an experience beyond belief…

Steal Your Soul

Some Native American tribes believed that your soul becomes trapped in a photograph. Care to help us test the theory? We’ll take your picture and include it in your own personalized Burning Man postcard. As if stealing your soul wasn’t enough, we’ll also ask you to donate to our interactive shrine an object that has spontaneously become sacred to you. You might not get your soul back, but maybe you’ll realize that things we call sacred-objects, symbols, or creeds-only become sacred when humans ascribe meaning to them. And you’ll get a postcard out of it.
