Burning Man Toronto

Toronto artists want to catch fire at 2013 Burning Man

A pack of crazy pyros from Toronto are making dreams come true for other crazy pyros this year at Burning Man. They've won a grant to create a fire arcade dubbed the Charcade, where all of the games "spew fire." It sound utterly terrifying, but also kind of undeniably badass. The trick is, they've got to raise $10,000, which they're working toward using Kickstarter. (They're at about $2,000 now).

The whole setup is lead by maker and artist Christopher Guard, in conjunction with Site 3 coLaboratory at Bloor and Ossington. In total, they intend to build "10 colossal fire-erupting Skee Ball machines," among other horrifyingly awesome structures. Fire art games include but are not limited to Super Street Fire, Rock Inferno, Dance Dance Immolation, Riskee Ball, and
Touch Me. Check the project the group put together for last year's Burning Man on Gizmodo to see what these nerds are capable of. And remember, kids, it's all fun and games until someone loses a...what have you.
