UCSB Museum of Art Mythic Visions Opening
On Thursday, September 28, Fishbon brought Drums and Fire Machines for the opening of the Unversity of California, Santa Barbara Museum of Art show: Mythic Visions. A celebration of the mystical yarn paintings of Huichol indian shaman Jose Benitez Sanchez and Divine Comedy illustrations of Surrealist Salvador Dali, the fire apparatus provided a compelling entrance image. The Ring of Fire is an experiential piece that uses an accelerometer to give the dancer control of the height of the flames around its perimeter.
