Burning Man - 2002

The Floating World

Reality is so big that we must protect ourselves from it. We make rooms, then hang pictures on the walls and think that what’s outside must surely be a picture, too. But the rising tide of reality overspreads our boundaries. Our little worlds, in truth, are ships that float upon a sea. In the year 2002, we will cast off from the shore. The Black Rock Desert will become an ocean, a deep and perilous span, forever filled with the unexpected. Our theme is about how we find our way through the world and what we seek and value in it. Prepare for a voyage of discovery.
