The Serpent Mother recently traveled to Calgary, AB, to take part in Beakerhead , a city wide program of science, engineering and art. Check out our build and show stories on the blog, and see all the beautiful photos here.
Its always a pleasure to show one of our sculptures in public; we loved the interaction of the crowd, and greatly enjoyed working with Beakerhead.
Meet Noetica, the newest sculpture from the Flaming Lotus Girls.
Noetica is an installation inspired by the interconnectedness of all humans in society. It comprises two stainless kinetic structures made of 144 intersecting squares. Although it looks like a pile of cubes, each sculpture moves with surprisingly sinuous motion. The 8ft tall controller is moved by 2 or more participants, and their cooperation causes the 25ft tall replica statue to respond with hydraulic-controlled movement and propane flame effects
We have received an honorarium from Burning Man to build this piece for Black Rock City 2017, and completed a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. We’ll be out there soon!
