In a collaboration between Burning Man, Leonardo journal and swissnex San Francisco, an evening symposium titled Fire Arts & Burning Desires will present several Burning Man fire artists, who will discuss the use of their work with fire as a creative medium.
From pyrrhic highlight to transcendent interaction, when is fire an appropriate part of a sculptural statement? How do we use fire in a safe way for both the artist and the audience? Learn about the behind the scenes gyrations of previous Burning Man fire art spectacles.
Fire Arts & Burning Desires is hosted by swissnex San Francisco and presented by Burning Man and Leonardo journal, who recently collaborated in publishing an exclusive collection of essays and photographs on the Fire Arts of Burning Man (Leonardo Volume 40 Issue # 4, 2007).
Speakers presenting at the symposium will include Crimson Rose (The Fire Goddess), The Flaming Lotus Girls, (TBA), Bill Codding (The Burninator), Wally Glen (The Zen Fire Garden) and DaveX, who will discuss the safety parameters of working with fire in an artistic way.
