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.
Expanding on the success of Poetic Kinetics' similar 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 will be clad in a laser cut façade creating a mysterious and engaging aesthetic with a comfortable, unique environment inside for people to gather and experience the extraordinary beauty of inverted fire.
