Burning Man considers alternatives to Burning a Man

Burning Man is having a crisis of self! It is asking, in the context of the world burning, the carbon emissions getting out of control, and more proverbial shit hitting the proverbial fan every day, whether the burning of a massive man is ok anymore?

Though the American context differs from the Australian, many of the more philosophical members of the Modifyre community are also musing on the subject… Though as Haraway says, what better icon for the Anthropocene???

Alongside that, the big burn have released their ambitious plan to go carbon negative by 2030, good on ‘em!

Read more about it here and let us know what you think:


BURN Arts, Inc and the Modifyre Community wish to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the Country
upon which Modifyre takes place, the Bigambul and Kambuwal Peoples.  


We also wish to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the Country upon which we live, learn and work, the Jagera and Turrbal Peoples.
We honour their Ancestors and pay our deepest respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.  


We extend that respect to all First Nations People, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture and hopes of
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. We honour and respect their continued cultural and spiritual relationship
to their Traditional Lands, Seas and Waters and recognise their unique and valuable contribution to society.  


Sovereignty was never ceded.
