Burning Man 2006

BURNING MAN FESTIVAL 2006 - etoy.AGENTS braving the desert nights, sand in our teeth, resolve in our red eyes.

one small boot

WELCOME to all new M∞ PILOTS!

As of today, etoy.CORPORATION presents the MISSION ETERNITY SARCOPHAGUS, a mobile sepulcher for users who prefer to be buried at an undetermined geographical location, at the Burning Man 2006. Check us out near the temple (open after sundown), or visit the etoy.CREW at the playaQ camp site at 4:30 and brave!!!

The mobile cemetery tank is a 20 foot ISO standard cargo container which potentially travels planet earth forever. The inside walls of the tank are covered with 12,000 individually addressable LED pixels, forming an immersive, semi-interactive display system with each pixel offering a last resting place of a M∞ PILOT. The system therefore allows for simple re-location of the mortal remains of up to 1000 M∞ PILOTS.

>> YOU ARE INVITED TO JOIN MISSION ETERNITY - ONE OF THE MOST CHALLENGING OPEN CONTENT PROJECTS IN THE HISTORY OF ART.
STORAGE ANGELS, CODERS, LAWYERS AND MORTAL REMAINS COURIERS CAN APPLY ONLINE FOR ANGEL STATUS AND PARTICIPATE IN THE MISSION.

>> COMMUNICATION: Due to extensive offline operations in LA, some etoy.AGENTS missed considerable amounts of emails, phone calls and other data traffic. Please visit http://www.etoy.com/contact and resend your messages to specific agents if you did not get the answer you were looking/waiting for. The etoy.CREW apologizes for the communication inconvenience.

Sakku on the road with the etoy.CREW


picture courtesy of Everett Taasevigen


Sakku 013 was a permanent companion of the etoy.CREW during their venture to setup and perform the MISSION ETERNITY project at the ZeroOne festival in San Jose, CA. Besides fitting perfectly to the crew's ci and uniforms, the bag proved to be extremely useful to ensure internal communication flows by keeping the mobiles charged. With the help of the hot californian sun, sakku managed to successfully bypass almost any circumstances with unstable electricity supply. Moreover, sakku became almost indispensable after charging the crew's dremel during a time-critical night shift.
