For some time now I’ve been playing with a phrase in my mind. Flammable People. It popped into my brain last year and I had nothing to do with it other than giggle when I think about it. I’ve decided that it will be the name of a flame effects collective that I’d like to assemble. It would consist of people who build and operate both propane and liquid fueled (gasoline, diesel, kerosene, alcohol) flame effects devices.
I was messing around with MSpaint and came up with some concept graphics to use for the collective. I pulled an image of a DOT flammable placard from a safety supply website. In the second version I added a pedestrian icon from iconpedia.com. I’d like to find someone with the capability to print some prototype (small run, 5 – 10 pieces) placards and / or vinyl decals.
I’ve also thought of using Flammable People as a Burning Man camp name. It wouldn’t necessarily mean that everyone who would be part of it would have to build or operate flame effects. Fire admirers, junkies, and groupies would be 100% welcome. The next graphic might just become a gift sticker at the burn in 2012. Depending on the length of the name of 2012’s theme, it may be included as well.
You know, from the time I saw your first blog, I got the impression that you’ve got this thing with fire and burning stuff… what’s up with that?
Yep. I’ve always been in touch with my inner caveman. It’s only in the last year that I’ve found my lost tribe. At Burning Man I don’t stick out like a sore thumb. If anything, I need to step up my game! I thought I liked fire…
Here’s some irony for you though. We live in the middle of the forest. Lotsa wood everywhere. Free. Yet we heat with… Electricity!
It’s easier to split electrons than wood.
I do have a fascination with wood, too, but not the kind that burns… (!)
Everyone deserves a little belly scratchn’ , So anyone know the 2012 theme for Burning Man yet?
It’s been said in multiple places that it will be “Fertility 2.0”. I’m so very not excited about it. I hope it isn’t true…
