Ring of Fire - Flame modulated by dancer movement


The Ring of Fire is a dancing interactive flame scupture. A trained professional dancer wears a wireless sensor which translates the dancer's movements into a burning ring of fire. Perplexing...yes! But it's also the only one.

Flame Speaker Diagram


This diagram illustrates the common elements associated with the Flame Speaker. A larger single upright flame dances out of this sculpture in response to whatever music is played nearby. The ambient lighting provided by this scupture is especially riveting for dancing. This sculpture brings light and warmth, even if it remains a struggle to explain why it was created in the first place.

Fire Snakes at Xara 2005


The Fire Snakes are graceful, elegant, writhing flexible tubes of steel which spout fire. The tubes gently caress one another and even relight each other when the need arises. Even flexible metal tubes can appear to look compassionate when compared to human beings.
