Burning Japan 2015 - Art Theme "2115"
"Burning Japan” is a four days long celebration of art inspired by Burning Man in the state of Nevada. People gather with food, music, art and everything they need to survive and share what they brought in. You will find yourself becoming friends with strangers, laughing so hard that makes you feel like you shared the best moment of life. It sounds like another planet, but you are invited to jump out of reality.
You are a time traveler. Imagine our world in 100 years. Capitalism, as well as the idea of money, are a thing of the past. Monetary exchange abandoned, there are no nations or boundaries. Only small vibrant villages rich with community and cooperation.. Humanity’sperception of value diversifies, individuals looking within themselves more than ever, as lifeless mundane tasks are relegated to machines. Self expression is essential. No one need feel shy or hesitant to stand out. Some people choose to innovate creating unimaginably sophisticated technologies, lighting the dark sky. Other people go back to nature, or celebrate the wisdom from the past. Either way, everyone has the freedom to follow their heart and fully enjoy a lifetime of their own design. You are a time traveler. Transport yourself 100 years into the future. The future is full of diversity.
The art theme for Burning Japan this year is “2115”. When you arrive, you start time traveling to the world 100 years in the future. In this future world, there is no such thing as money. We respect each other, and give to one another as we are able. Be it material or not, gifting makes this society work. Here, people pursue their dreams without pressure to conform to society’s conception of success . It does not matter if it is high-tech or lowtech, any wayto radically expressyourself will do. You might try something you’ve never felt free to try, discover a new skill, see something you have never seen and meet new travelers through day and night. However fun it may be, all journeys come to an end. As you dance joyfully, a huge fire occurs and you wake up in the time you used to belong to. Nevertheless, whatever you felt in the future stays with you in your mind, and you realize its power and potential in this present time.
