SPECIAL EDITION: “SERAPHIM: THE SPIRIT OF UNIFICATION” TO SURVIVE DECOMPRESSION THROUGH NO FAULT OF OUR OWN
As the Los Angeles Burning Man community prepares for its annual Decompression, organizers have joined the Los Angeles Fire Department in calling off the art burn. “Seraphim: The Spirit of Unification” was set to burn at 2:00 am, with the event going all night for the first time. It was the first time an actual burn had been planned for the event, now in its tenth year.
“The Los Angeles Fire Department is absolutely right on this. It’s been way too dry and way too hot. It would be irresponsible and unsafe to burn under these conditions,” said Athena Demos, producer of the 10th Annual Los Angeles Decompression Arts and Music Celebration. The event takes place in LA State Historic Park on October 13th, starting at 1:00 pm. It concludes at dawn the following day. “We are still taking this event till dawn.”
Plans currently call for the art piece to be installed at the park on Sunday, October 7th. Starting the next day, artists and members of diverse Los Angeles communities will be invited to make art together at the base of the installation. Materials will be free, and Burning Man artists will be on hand to collaborate, teach, learn, and make friends with anyone interested. Hours will be 3:30 pm to sunset Monday – Friday.
All visitors will also be invited to decorate a board for nailing on to the art piece. People often leave personal messages, resolutions, and memorials on the piece, using it much like the Temple at Burning Man. At the end of Decompression, Seraphim will be dismantled and stored until conditions improve and a suitable place is found for the eventual burn.
“The silver linings here are that we get a chance to demonstrate our complete devotion to safety and to cooperation with the LA Fire Department. Also, we have another reason to come together in a few weeks or months to have our burn,” Demos said.
The rest of the day will feature musical stages, plenty of art, food, and thousands of “burners” and neighbors enjoying the annual event. It will take place at the LA State Historic Park (1245 N. Spring St, Los Angeles, CA, 90012).

Everyone is welcome to participate whether they are a burner or not. There are several ways you can participate . . .
Make a DONATION. We can not do it without generous donations by people like YOU!!! Our budget for Seraphim: The Spirit of Unification is $10,000. Every tiny donation gets us one step closer to our goal and becoming the first ever large scale ceremonial burn in Los Angeles.
Whether you can burn on playa or not, this is YOUR BURN! So lets practice Radical Participation and Radical Inclusivity while we Radically Express ourselves in our own home town.
