Who Wants this Burn to Have an Effigy?


  • 90






  • Summary

    Seems like we are short of something to set on fire. With a bit of funding for wood, let's change that.

    Full description of the concept

    The Vision: I envision a bird hanging in a net. Anyone who sees her will be blinded by her beauty and provoked by her cage. She is bound with the ropes of pride, greed, envy, and possession. At the end of the week we will set the ropes on fire and watch them break apart exposing and setting fire to a majestic, wooden bird. The wings will be spring loaded ready to burst into flight once the ropes are weakened. As her cage sets her ablaze she will take flight until she burns herself out.

    The Mechanics: the structure itself will be a spring loaded puppet. The bird will be framed with metal and variations of wood to ensure correct burning times and combustion rates. She will be bound with rope closing the wings around the body of the bird. The wings will be spring loaded. The tension of the rope being the only thing keeping the wings shut. The rope will inevitably burn away releasing the tension between the wings and the rope. The wings will spring open giving her a slight wobble and the illusion of flight. She will then burn herself into ashes.

    Your tokens would help with acquiring the necessary materials, typically made up of tree parts that would be held together with metallic bits in order to form the base.

    How do you plan to Strike the Project?

    If weather conditions do not allow, the effigy will be ready for strike in this unfortunate event. The plan is to have it built with a modular design for it to be easily taken down and removed. If it is indeed burned in the end, then strike is composed mostly of clean-up.

    How can other burners co-create with you?

    Volunteers would help greatly in loading and unloading parts to assemble the effigy.
