In collaboration with Burning Man and Leonardo Journal, swissnex San Francisco presents an evening symposium entitled “Fire Arts and Burning Desires” with presentations by several Burning Man fire artists who will discuss the use of their work with fire as a creative medium.

From a pyrrhic highlight to a transcendent interaction, when is fire an appropriate part of a sculptural statement? How to use fire in a safe way for both the artist and the audience? Get a peek behind the scenes of the creation of previous Burning Man fire art spectacles.

Fire Arts & Burning Desires is hosted by swissnex San Francisco and presented by Burning Man and Leonardo Journal, who recently collaborated in publishing an exclusive collection of essays and photographs on the Fire Arts of Burning Man (LJ Volume 40 issue # 4).

Speakers attending the symposium will include Crimson Rose (The Fire Goddess), The Flaming Lotus Girls, (TBA), Bill Codding (The Burninator), Wally Glen (The Zen Fire Garden), Lucy Hoskins (Satin’s Calliope) and DaveX who will discuss the safety parameters of working with fire in an artistic way.
