Every year Burning Man releases a new theme that is meant to shape the art and inspiration for the burn. One of the most accessible ways to participate in the theme is to create outfits based on that year's topic.
While I, Robot might procure images of tin man and C3PO (and who doesn't love a shiny outfit?) the organizers have asked that artists and attendees also consider current and future technologies (including robots). From how technology is changing society, to being constantly monitored by the government, all of these ideas are fuel for creative fashion. Below are some ideas based on this year's theme:
Take the RED Pill
Help your fellow burners leave the default world behind and enter wonderland with this Matrix inspired outfit. Wander the playa offering people red pills, because let's be real, no one would take the blue one.
The Future is Steam Powered
Make your I, Robot inspired outfit futuristic and nostalgic at the same time with this steampunk inspired outfit. Just don't forget to keep your gears smoothly oiled for dancing and debauchery.
Bling the Robot
Don't let the robots get all the bling! This silver inspired robot is futuristic and shiny in all the right ways. Perfect for day or night, the only thing missing is your unique protocol.
You are Ex Machina
You may have been designed by someone else, but that doesn't mean you have to obey your programming. Reject the default world and show just how adaptive you are with this Ex Machina inspired costume.
The "Y" in Cyborg
You may be human but you've been assimilated.
