Sweet Night in the Ring of Fire
On Wednesday, October 12, Fishbon Event Lab undercover operatives successfully erected a Clandestine Fire Ring on Helena Street in Santa Barbara, California and populated it with fire-obsessed dancers and a drop-in drummer. The result was a sublime interactive adventure complete with Alan's wrist or foot-mounted Wireless Accelerometer that controlled the height of the flames with variations in hand motions. A crazy dance interlude rounded out the evening, as belly dancers in the "advisory panel" hijacked the ring and lifted it with improvised movement accompanied by house tracks from a nearby vehicle. Is this what Wagner had in mind?
