Le Attrata is a showpiece of metal and fire. The moths have been created to consume that which they are attracted to; light and heat. Le Attrata offers a beautiful place of gathering and visceral interaction with fantastic flame effects.
What inspired you to make this project?:
It was time to let the moths be the flames.
Le Attrata was conceived as a study of attraction- of embodying the very things that attract, and sometimes, disorient. We're a group of people that likes to make beautiful, startling things, and we love to play with fire. Our goal was to create a sculpture that held an inviting space for people, while housing 3 turbine driven blast furnace flame effects. The moths put on a show that finds the edge of perceived safety and rides it all the way.
