We believe that Mementomorium's vision fits organically with the culture and philosophy of Burning Man.
To quote from the 10 Principles of Burning Man:
"We seek to overcome barriers that stand between us and a recognition of our inner selves, the reality of those around us, participation in society, and contact with a natural world exceeding human powers. No idea can substitute for this experience."
Mementomorium project embraces these ideas and seeks to foster inner-transformation and self discovery through personal participation. Everyone is invited to join-in. Everyone is invited to contribute . Everyone is invited to play. INCLUSION, COLLABORATION, and RESPECT are the key components of the Burning Man's culture.
To successfully achieve Mementomorium vision we also want to adopt the same punctuality ethics as promoted by Burning Man Arts staff:
"Our deadlines are firm; we do not operate on "playa time." We will be requesting things throughout the season (i.e., response to emails, signing up for meeting dates, crew lists for tickets/early arrivals) and we ask that you respect our deadlines and be as prompt as possible in responding to our requests. We know that some deadlines can seem early in your installation’s development, but these deliverables affect other teams and other timelines as well. We will make sure to communicate clearly the deadlines for each deliverable. If you cannot make a deadline let us know as quickly as possible; it may be possible to negotiate a slightly different date."
Participation in Mementomorium project, just like in any Burning Man project, is 100% voluntary, so only you can decide what level of involvement is right for you. We need artists, builders, hosts, etc. Whether you can help with advice, donate materials, your time and skills, or anything else you may want to share—all help is greatly appreciated!
As a team, we want to realize Mementomorium vision, so that we can enjoy gifting this life changing experience, as well as the 11th principle of Burning Man of radical self-enfunment!
