According to her blog, Fashioning Community is: “Inspired by the ideas of “costume as art” and traditional costume museum exhibits, the idea is to set up a dense “forest” of mannequin figures, each dressed in an example of a certain aspect of what I have come to find makes up “Burning Man style.”
But it doesn’t stop there. As part of the overall theme of Dreamtime, the camp with which the project is affiliated, storytelling is key. Each outfit not only has a Burning Man story, but a personal one, and usually one that reflects community. However, as Ivy began to start collecting materials for this project, she found that the figures – the mannequins -- also had histories and stories of their own to tell. Read more about these stories on Ivy’s blog.
For those playing the 3playa Community Drinking Game at home, it was Ivy’s intention to make this episode of BURNcast the most inebriating celebration of community (drink!) to date.
