Messenger of Fire

Glastonbury Music Festival, Somerset - 1999

Performance pyrotechnics, willow and wood

540cm box, 540cm figure

The core of the project was the collaboration between Serena and Fernando Martin from Valencia, Spain to create a visual pyrotechnic performance during Glastonbury Music Festival. The final piece was made up of a six metre box and a six metre willow winged messenger. The box symbolically contained our negative thoughts and the winged messenger conducted our desires and hopes up and away, when consumed by fire, impelled skyward, on the night of the performance.
