The Flaming Lotus Girls are a “female-driven, volunteer-based group of artists who have been making kinetic, mechanical fire art since 2000.” They’ve brought awesome, fiery installations to three previous Maker Faire Bay Areas, and this year they are bringing three of their stunning Mutopia Pods. Mutopia in all its glory is “a spiraling sculptural installation of seedpods laid out according to the Golden Ratio.” For the Maker Faire, the Flaming Lotus Girls are bringing three of Mutopia’s most beautiful pods, rising from 10’ to 16’, connected by an intricate pattern of roots and tendrils. All of their previous installations have been gorgeous, and no doubt this one will follow suit.
Check out the video below to see the Pods in action and read the interview we did with them last year. And for all the information you need to come play with us at this weekend’s Faire, head to the Maker Faire website.
