Burn2: Builds in the Time Machine sim

Burn2 ends in a few days with Burning the Man on this Saturday, October 27, 2018, and of the Temple on Sunday.  Builds will remain up for a few days after that, but there will be no more events.  Visit now!

In this post, I’m presenting some photos from Time Machine, one of the five sims in the Burn2 Playa.  These are only a few of the builds you’ll see there.

#1. Dig #64 The Cavern  Club  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Burning Man- Time Machine/60/21/25

The year is 2164 AD.  Androids have taken over and humans are gone, but android society is breaking down.  They realize that humans had something essential that androids do not have: culture, so androids are now digging up old centers of human culture, seeking the culture they themselves have not known.  This site is dig #64, at Matthew Street in Liverpool, England, the site of the old Cavern Club , where androids are uncovering music of the 1960s.

#6. The Man  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Burning%20Man-%20Time%20Machine/172/57/25

The Man of course is the reason we are all here.  On Saturday October 27, 2018 he will burn twice, after Lamplighter processions that begin at 10am and 4pm SLT.  During the Burn itself and the hour or so leading up to it, only authorized personnel will be allowed in the sim.
