JAPANORAMA
From Zen to Yen and Back Again.

Dragon Debris presents an examination of Wabi Sabi, the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. This time, we revel in the mystery and ordered chaos of Japan, from ancient to modern.

JAPANORAMA is many layers of experience as a sort of maze, that one must traverse to discover the essence, the inner core. How do perceptions change as one delves deeper through imagery, tradition, customs, innovations and obstacles?

Lucid Revolution
Lucid Revolution
A "lucid dream" is a dream when one knows one is dreaming. Our Burning Man 2005 camp will create an environment where the distinction between being in the dream world and the waking world is blurred. In the dream world, anything is possible. In the Burning Man World, anything is possible.
Lucidity opens the psyche and endless doors to self-knowledge, exploration, and fulfillment. A 44 ft dome will be the main focus of our camp, hosting two huge parties on Wednesday and Thursday nights with a large sound system, circus performers, stilt walkers, and DJs and live music from around the country. In the remainder of the nights and days our space will transform into a tranquil peaceful environment. From Friday until Sunday, burners are encouraged to come enjoy dream therapy with many licensed psychotherapists and dream workers. Our space will transform from a wild circus, psychic dream world to a peaceful dome filled with king and queen sized beds with clean sheets (we are bringing hundreds). Our camp will provide earplugs to all burners with relaxing music and Zen hypnotic words over the speaker system for people to enjoy a trip into the psyche.
Some initial ideas for our camp include a wait staff on guided wires and harnesses that can fly around the dome; larger than life stilt walkers in full costume; contorted mirrors for funhouse effects; projection of films such as that of "Waking Life"; projection of clouds and bird migration patterns to provoke the feeling of flying; projection of scuba diving to encourage the feeling of breathing underwater; a number of large beds will be arranged within the dome; digital clocks that flicker 12:00; and trampolines for leaping.
Our dome will be filled with dream signs to induce lucid dreaming. Dream signs take the form of events that would be considered impossible in the waking world. Some examples of dream signs are breathing underwater, flying or taking unusually long leaps, oversized / undersized objects or people for that matter, unusual colors for skies or living creatures (purple skies, green cats). We will have more subtle dream signs as well, such things as: device failure (light switches that don't work), people with unusual speech patterns, and objects that defy gravity.
In addition to the 44 ft dome, Lucid Revolution will also feature large artwork and interactive experiences such as the Zen machine. Our camp will include camp kitchens, a shower station, and a community shade area at the center of our camp. We will position our RVS along the outskirts of our camp in effort to block sound from within and as well as the outside. Our tents will likely be located along the inside of our camp, between the community shade center and the RVS.
Our camp community (Over 100 people) is composed of people from various areas of the country, most specifically New Mexico, Oregon, Colorado, California and New York. Most of them have been participating in Burningman for 4 - 8 years. The leaders of our community have been involved in various theme camps, art projects, and music arrangements at Burningman and Regional Events. We understand the magnitude of Burning Man, the importance of tradition and the requirement that we leave behind no trace of our time spent there.

Lustre
We are an ever-evolving community defined by the love that we share with one another and with the world at large. Our sense of community is created through multi-faceted, aesthetic expressions of love, generosity, playfulness and manifesting magic.
- Create a peaceful, nurturing and safe space;
- Make people feel great, beautiful, and loved with our caring, sharing and gifting both materially and non-materially;
- Encourage self-expression with support and playful participation.
We are committed to generating an expansive and generous sense of abundance on the Playa, both for our village inhabitants, and for all those folks we touch, both through our outreach projects on the Playa and by having them stumble into our loving home. We conjure an inviting respite for guests and an incubator for continuous regeneration of our village members. We do this by providing a number of unique outwardly reaching and/or inwardly supportive venues designed to make a difference that is limited only by a willingness to participate and be fully expressed.
We will nurture participants through ministrations of visual, aural, and taste stimulations provided by the Astral Lounge. We will facilitate glorious self-expression by glittering bright, shiny people both in village and through mobile outreach. We will entertain participants with performances in our 60 ft. parachute stage. We will facilitate health and self-tuning through yoga sessions and chill time. Finally, we will provide a deep and touching experience of acknowledgement for participants who open themselves at the alter of Angels of Acknowledgement.
