FLG presence at Burning Man 2014


Jess Bruder with Merope

The photos are just starting to trickle out to the default world, but we’ve got one to share with you: Merope, on fire, in the 3:00 Plaza!

FLG brought a few elements from our favorite pieces to share with the citizens of Black Rock City, and we situated them in the cozy corner of the 3:00 Plaza for maximum participant interaction.

This is the first time the updated Merope is visiting the playa. Continuous fire lights each of her eight points, which flare up individually and in combination, in response to our interactive button controls.

Surrounding Merope are the 12′ tall feathers from our 2005 installation Angel of the Apocalypse, and we even brought the wooden benches from our 2013 installation Xylophage, so participants can take a break while people-watching and fire-gazing.
