Fertility 7.0 – a 36 inch by 48 inch art poster. It was made as part of the Carnival Of Space & Time installation for Eridu Society at Burning Man in 2015. The event’s theme that year was Carnival Of Mirrors. We wanted to play on that, but ultimately decided to use it for our own art theme. Eridu Society often works elements of steampunk and time travel into its installations. The premise was that members of the camp had traveled to future Burning Man events. Then we brought back the art theme posters to delight and inspire. Click here to check out art theme posters current and past.
Burning Man had first used Fertility as an art theme in 1997, and later it was re-imagined as Fertility 2.0 in 2012. As a result, we thought it would be fun if it turned out that Burning Man had gone back to that well a few more times. Our understanding of the previous Fertility art themes was that they were about growth and evolution. Blooms and petals and organic shapes seemed the best fit. I was art director on the project, Pani pushed all the pixels.
