The “first” burning of the man in Second Life for Burn2 took place on Saturday, October 23, 2010! I was lucky to get into the sim as it was full of people when I tried to get in. Each server can only handle about 100 people max in Second Life, given all the scripts that most people typically have running, so I was lucky to have gotten in at all given the attraction of the “burning of the man” event. This was very much a community run event and it was neat to see so many people participating in this ritual burning of the man. Just being in the moment and enjoying and understanding what the creative process is all about was what made it so enjoyable for me.
A took a copy of pictures of Splash carrying wood beams from the “man” into the fire. Everyone in attendance was given the opportunity to pick up a piece of the Man and then carry it into the fire! Splash definitely got his “burn on” when he was carrying wood into the fire!
