  • "flames whirled around in a circle faster than we've ever seen before, and in a Marinetti/Futurist way could only be described as 'beautiful.'"
    - V. Vale

    "'Pyro-expressionist' artist Kevin Binkert has worked for years with fire, shaping it like sculpture, taming the natural and spontaneous direction of the tongues and forcing them into the shapes he derives from the principle of fire choreography." (- La Biennale)

    Scott Gibbons works with the captured sound of Binkert's fiery performance to give an amplified composition of fire.
