This image is missing the 20 interaction stations needed to create fire: We'll Update Image with stations by 18-Apr Check out the links or my next post below for more images & descriptions.


It's been 10 years and we finally got ourselves together as a non profit arts collective to make our own piece of interactive flaming art after spending years helping everyone else on playa. Shipping Toronto to Reno is never simple. We have been doing small stuff but this is the first of three larger projects we have planned over the next two years (all of which use the same parts; recycle). We are excited to give back after so many years of amazing art.

We received support from the BM Arts Grant Committee but this will fall short of the estimated $8,000 required to build and transport the Heart Machine to Black Rock City in August 2010 and set it up for an event right here in Toronto! Feel free to contact BM Arts Grant Committee to make sure the Heart Machine is legitimate.

We will fund raise up here over the summer but every little gift helps; especially since this piece of art is 100% interactive fire and does not operate without the citizens of Metropolis.

We will make it happen but with donations we can still feed our families ;)

The Heart Machine is inspired by the 2010 Burning Man theme and In Fritz Lang’s 1926 movie Metropolis. In the movie the main character asks, “It was their hands that built this city of ours, father. But where do the hands belong in your scheme?â€
