You know the Flaming Lotus Girls…..they play with fire and make things come to life

They’ve got a new project called XYLOPHAGE

Xylophage will be a monumental environment, constructed of metal, wood, fire, light and sound. The sculpture revels in the beauty of fungi and the critical role they play on this planet by capturing the eternal cycle of decomposition, renewal and rebirth.

Fire and bright lights beckon from afar to the remains of a charred colossal tree destroyed by a forest fire. Surrounding the enormous stump, various larger-than-life fungi sprout from the remains to reclaim this fallen giant. The great, unending circle continues: life ends in destruction; destruction brings new life to spring forth yet again.

Groups of mushrooms invite audience interactivity with the elements of fire, sound and light. An ethereal “fire-fall” trickles down shelf fungus growing on the outside of the tree, gathering in a basin within the roots. Pulsing fire flares along the rim as people enter the space within the tree. The stump reveals its hollow interior, where a ring of benches makes for cozy seats under the open sky.

FLG is known for interactive, engaging, experiential art. In addition to the many long hours of volunteers’ time, we are asking for your help to make the piece come alive. The grant of funds from Burning Man only covers a portion of our total costs. Your pledge to our Kickstarter fundraising goal will enable us to complete the sculpture, buy necessary materials (and propane!), transport the piece, and support the crew during the installation on the Playa.

We ask you to please help us by donating here, and hope you are able to come join us in this endeavor. Either from afar, at the shop making the sculpture – or on some magical night in Black Rock City interacting with our elegant and mysterious Xylophage environment – we invite you to be a Flaming Lotus Girl!

Your contribution will earn you our undying fiery love and propane kisses!


The Flaming Lotus Girls are pleased to announce the first of its kind coming together of some of the playa’s most beloved crews in support of our 2013 project: Xylophage.
