Mind Sublime

" To cause the mind to pass directly from the solid to the vapor state and condense back to solid form". Everyone who possesses a skill would be invited to share that skill with others through demonstrations and group discussions in the form of workshops and playshops – individuals and groups who would like to be a part of this experience – anything you can dream of can be a contribution to this village’s theme. How to make sushi, build an art car, balance your checkbook, play a drum, build a shade structure, film a movie, and ANYTHING else you can think of (the goal is to have a mix of both off-playa and on-playa related information).

Musee des Aster (BORG2)

The BORG2 is dedicated to making the Art of the Burning Man 2005 event SPECTACULAR. Towards this goal, we are running a demonstration project using MASSIVELY Collaborative DO-MOCRACY as a means to inspire, facilitate, curate and fund public works of art for Burning Man. In the process, we also intend to reaffirm the core truth of the larger Burning Man experiment: Collaborate creative work, broadly defined, is our main vehicle towards community. We have funded and will bring the projects of at least ten artists to the playa this year. The Musee des Aster will be our center camp, public shop, art institute and obtanium depot, and where we will facilitate all the art that fits.
