Kiwiburner Jax, who – as those of you who follow the Kiwiburn Facebook group will know – has been doing some anthropological work on Burner culture, recently won the postgraduate essay competition run by the academic journal Sites. Her article Kiwiburn – A Biophilic Festival looks at “mind-body-environment connections” at the Burn. In essence, how the Burner principles guide us in the ways we engage with the ecology of the Paddock.
If you’re keen to find out more, or just wondering what “biophilic” means, fear not, intrepid Burner! For Jax has uploaded the essay to Research Gate for you to read, free of charge, simply by clicking on this here link.
