Fire Ballet!

The Crucible’s Fire Ballet is going! It’s great! You should go! I made the crazy fire fingers and fire tutu, and you can look for me on stage too (I’ll be the one with the rope).

The official website is a good place for tickets.

These photos by Lane Hartwell are amazing, and you should go look at them.

The East Bay Express has an article. Note, however, that my name is not Ian Hunter.

Finger electronics rebuild

March 18th, 2008 raindrift Posted in build, make, Projects, wearable 9 Comments »

I just spent the evening rebuilding the control system for the fire fingers. They’ll be much more reliable now (not that they had a problem before, but I was personally uncomfortable with the level of jank). I snapped a couple pics before closing up the box.

The fingers are a performance tool that hasn’t really been out much. There is, however, a photoset of Audrey using them to immolate her former uniform from the gelateria where she used to work. We’re hoping to use then at the Fire Ballet, if I can get the gloves to fit the performer.
