At first, Korea Burn was supposed to be a small festival organized by people who are into the culture and the spirit of Burning Man, however, the festival got bigger and bigger as more people wanted to get involved with the event.
Buring Man is a festival which burns wooden structures as a major event and involves self-expression, art installations, and performances. It also puts emphasis on community, radical involvement, self-dependence, sharing, and spiritual awakening.
We felt an imminent need of an official web page in order to update participants with accurate information and notices. Therefore, we started to make a web page and the designs for it. Korea Burn just started to get bigger and more complex although it was originally planned as a small event.
Fire and Burning Man
Fire is the core of Korea Burn. Burning is not a simple symbol but contains a lot of meanings. Fire Conclave, the last performance of Korea Burn, describes paintings of fire on the night sky through Fire Dancers’ choreography. We are currently choreographing and testing fire effects with various kinds of equipment and oil to present during the festival.
Our festival is free for everyone. You might wonder why we would need tickets even if it’s free. We want people to take part in our festival with responsibility and will to contribute. Hence, we decided that the application process itself and carrying your ticket could be a way to show your resolution to our community.
Burning Man Festival
Burning Man has started by Larry Harbey in 1986. He burned a human-shaped wooden structure on the beach of San Francisco. Nowadays, about 50,000 people gather in Black Rock City, Nevada and build camps for self-expression, art installations, and performance at Burning Man. Burning Man is an open-flatform festival which put emphasis on community, involvement, expression, self-dependence, and experience. Google doodle has appeared because Larry and Sergey, the founders of Google, attended Burning Man. Also, open source movement from Silicon Valley stemed from this festival.
