Looking for a specific fire art piece...thingy

Looking for a specific fire art piece...thingy

Postby Turnip » Tue Feb 08, 2011 8:23 pm

I have looked all over.

It was large. The specific thing I remember is the spires of curved metal arranged semi circle to look like they were raising out of the playa. Big enough for a group of people to sit inside.

Fire would jet out of the tops of the spires at varying pressures and perfectly timed to make music. The people sitting inside the structure were directly under the fire, enjoying the heat and unique sounds and visuals.

Anyone have any pictures, or videos, or even the NAME of this piece so I can look it up? It was my favorite piece at BM 2009.

here is my poor attempt at an ms paint version of it, in case my description sounds as retarded to you as it does to me. :roll:

Turnip you are exactly describing the Flaming Lotus Girls' 'Angel of the Apocalypse' of 2005...

that looks a bit like it, but this was actually from 2009. the spires were solid, not with the cut out designs in it.
It wasn't quite that large. The people sitting in the piece enjoying the fire and music sat on the ground, since standing up while the fire show was going would... probably kill you.

I should also note that the fire only came out of the tip of the spires, nowhere else on the spires themselves.

I know of the piece you speak of, but I can't remember what it was called.

I first saw it in 2004-5?

sorry can't be of more help

Maybe it was from the future. If you build it they will come.

From my friend that saw it more times that I did in 2009:



"There was a flaming fish and there was like 7 things that shot fire it was all made of metal i was practically sitting on a propane tank i think it was a calliope thing

they moved them around because i remember walking past there other nights and they were set up diferently"


When he says he was sitting on a propane tank, he means that quite literally. Inside the circle of spires that the fire jetted out of, where the group of people sat while the fire went on above them, there was a propane tank sitting there. Assuming it was hooked up to all of them?

Try going to the Image Gallery (from the main page), select 2009, Art; peruse the photos...
I saw 3 different pieces that *could* be the one, by description...

I've just looked through the entire 2009 gallery, scrutinizing every single photo, finding nothing but still hoping to see maybe a glimpse of it in the background of some other picture. But no dice.

Is there a possibility of me being able to post this in a different forum with more traffic so more people can see it?
