BURN2 Opens Today!

Saturday, October 16, 2010

Metaverse Arts celebrates the opening of Burn 2 with a special show tomorrow at 2 pm SLT.

BURN2 is the Second Life counterpart to the Burning Man Festival held in the Nevada High Desert every year. From the Burning Man website: (www.burningman.com) “Burning Man is an annual experiment in temporary community dedicated to radical self-expression and radical self-reliance”

This annual counterpart to Burning Man was originally called Burning Life. This year it’s organization was taken over by the Burning Man team, and changes have been made in its scale and in its adherence to the message and the community ideal of Burning Man.

Renamed BURN2 – this new, streamlined festival launches today at noon SLT. Metaverse Arts staff attended a press preview and came back with a cornucopia of photos from the festival site. Today at 2pm, we’ll meet up with two BURN2 staff members, Communications Manager Raven Haalan and DMV Department Lead Emcee Widget.

Learn a little more about the changes to the Burn and how it compares to previous years from Raven, then investigate with us the DMV, Department of Mutant Vehicles – a RL and SL Burn phenomenon – and learn about the fun, whimsical and creative Art Cars from Emcee.

All of this, plus we’ll highlight a few upcoming events and unveil this episodes featured gallery!

Metaverse Arts is filmed in Avalon Town at the Labyrinth Theatre (http://slurl.com/secondlife/The%20Labyrinth/127/104/34).
