Making 2pir Fly at Smukfest

Getting ready to fly 2pir

We just got pictures of the 2pir build-out happening in Denmark for this year’s Smukfest. This run we’ll attempt something 2pir has never done before: make it fly. The fine Danes over in Skanderborg are putting together the platform that will raise all of 2pir (both flame effects and performers) 3 meters off the ground. So far it’s looking pretty awesome. Check out all the pics below:

2pir Packed and On The Way To Denmark

June 8th, 2010 Ed Hunsinger

Omega Recoil: Denmark container load from oscar champagne on Vimeo.

After almost 6 months of rebuilding 2pir, testing, doing paperwork, and way too much time at NIMBY, 2pir is on it’s way to Denmark for Smukfest 2010! As you can see above, we spent the last Saturday afternoon stuffing everything into a shipping container for the journey across the ocean.

In the container with 2pir is Omega Recoil‘s Tesla Coil, and Therm‘s brand spanking new robot. Last year we put DDI on a boat. This year we’re putting 2pir in the air. The flame effects and the platform are going to be 3 meters in the air with festival goers milling about underneath them. We’re going to take the beach at Denmark and show the Danes more fire and electricity than they’ve seen in a long time.

Help Us Put Fire in Syzygryd!

May 7th, 2010 Ed Hunsinger

Syzygryd is in full swing these days, with software being written, controllers designed and ordered, giant pipes delivered, and testing of the fire tornado and flame effects. But our budget currently doesn’t cover all the fire we want in the sculpture! Oh no, what are we going to do?!? This is where you come in! We need your help to put fire in Syzygryd.

We’ve got a Kickstarter going that will help us pay for all the parts and some of the fuel to run at Burning Man this year. For your donation, you’ll receive all sorts of schwag, ranging from a sticker all the way up to your own private DDI or 2pir run! Also quite enticing is the chance to get your own personal flame effect built by us!
