The Seven Sisters is an interactive fire sculpture inspired by the constellation Pleiades. The installation is composed of seven sculptures, some rising from the ground, some hovering 20 feet in the air, each individual piece is complete unto itself; but together as the entire installation, the combined effect is dazzling and spellbinding.
Electra, the central element has a large spinning liquid fuel effect. An electric motor spins the nozzles creating angled plumes of spinning crown of fire 100 ft (30m) tall. Three of the stars are also animated with motors, spherical in shape, while three take organic seven-pointed star shapes. Each sculpture includes both an ambient flame and a unique flame effect.
The six sisters can be light for hours on end and Electra will operate for approximately 30 minutes, or until the fuel is exhausted. Before and after the Electra show, audience members are invited within the safety perimeter, and are encouraged to operate each star’s manual effects and be warmed by the fire.
