Deep Sea Angling at the Pleasure Garden

Our little fish Esmeralda went to a fabulous party, The Pleasure Garden, down in St Kilda on December 10th 2016.

 

She now lures in her prey with a new bulb replacing the flame effects for this event.

The Art & Science Of Experience Design

I’m going to be part of a discussion hosted by the Future Music Industry Network happening Thursday July 28th 2016 at SAE in South Melbourne. If you’re interested in events where, “the overall experience was preferred over headliners” and agree that we need to, “challenge the idea that an event needs to spend hundreds of thousands on big names, and should instead invest in experience to achieve the same result for a quarter of the cost and hassle” then this talk and panel discussion is for you.

The Event Theme is the “The Art & Science Of Experience Design” and I’ll be discussing my long time involvement with Burning Man and in particular the ARTery department as I’ve worked for both departments at the big burn in Nevada as well as leading the department here for Burning Seed and of course talking about the awesome participatory art we’ve been building with the Flame Effects Australia Crew. Registration is free, and includes networking, a keynote speaker then the panel discussion, RSVP here.

Flame Effects for the Artist Workshop & Burn On! Fundraiser

May is really heating up, especially the weekend of the 23rd-24th.

If you’ve got a fascination with flame effects like we do and want to know more then the Flame Effects for the Artist Workshop being held in Melbourne at Footscray Makers Lab is the course for you!

In this 2 day workshop you will learn basic practices and principles for incorporating fuel based flame effects into your work. This class is great for the beginning fire artist and always has something new for the “expert”. Like other classes hosted in North America we’ll have a participants who have had all levels of experience. This has made for some great questions and projects that have been both fun and challenging. We’ve also asked some of the leading flame effects creators and safety experts in Australia from SA, NSW and VIC to participate in the course to ensuring you’re getting the most up to date local information. Day one of the workshop is all theory and on day two we’ll build a flame effect as a group project giving you hands on experience fabricating, plumbing and working on electrical switches.
