Burning Man 2008 Art: Arson by Pat Herz

Center Camp Art

"Arson" is a set of three steel firebugs, each 14" long, 10'' wide, and 10'' tall. At night, a flame shoots out 4-6 inches from each bug's eyes. The bug is a steel encasing that houses a small propane BBQ canister in its belly. This propane fuels the fire effect, which lasts an hour or so before needing replacement. The flame from Arson's eyes can be either a tight pencil flame or a more broad and diffuse flame. The original firebug was designed as a stage prop and fire tool lighting device for Controlled Burn, Reno's fire performance group that builds the Shiva Vista stage and staffs the Fire Conclave. Two more bugs were built for the Café display.
