Fire, captured against the steel ceiling roils across the
surface in search of oxygen like molecule thin gossamer.

A comfortable, unique
environment inside for
people to gather and
experience the extraordinary
beauty of inverted fire.

A warm gathering place at night, the elevated deck with a recessed seating area, perfect for reclining and cuddling while watching the mesmerizing flame effects.

Pulled upwards by it’s own heat rising while the oxygen it needs is below causes the fire to move in ways we never get to experience.

Displayed safely in an all steel structure this piece is an educational opportunity to learn about the scientific nature of fire.

FIRE IN BALANCE

Fire in Balance, a 2014 Burning Man art piece.  Expanding on the success of the Burning Man honorarium piece ‘Holding Flame’, Fire in Balance is an installation made up of an inverted fire box suspended within a pagoda-like steel structural frame surrounded by a series of fire dishes and fire towers. The entire structure is clad in laser cut facade creating a mysterious and engaging aesthetic with a comfortable, unique environment inside for people to gather and experience the extraordinary beauty of inverted fire.

Fire has been an intrinsic part of the human experience since the dawn of man. Control of fire is what separated us from the animals. Fire in Balance takes that control and literally turns it upside down. Our desire is to create an immersive experience for large numbers of participants to witness and interact with the unique phenomenon of inverted fire.

Fire like you’ve

never seen it before…
