Las Vegas Blvd Gains Fiery New Art Addition
Today, LiveSpark, the cutting-edge digital flame effects art house and 2013 Downtown Project Portfolio acquisition revealed its Tree of Life street light, another leap in the move to crown DTLV the “World Capital of Fire.” The 30 foot-tall steel and chrome sculpture, an abstract riff on a desert bloom, utilizes a patented flame effect system to generate mesmerizing fire patterns which shift in mood from graceful to formidable — all within seconds.
"Our first piece from LiveSpark and a first of its kind for Downtown Las Vegas, this street light is also a way to turn something normally thought of as background city infrastructure into something fun," says Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos and founder of Downtown Project.
The Tree of Life fire sculpture is the brainchild of LiveSpark founder Brett Bond, and was created in conjunction with Bay-Area based fine artists Erik Walker and Nick Dong and local fabricators Quality Mechanical.
LiveSpark has created refined, flame effect enabled installations that have been seen by millions and featured at prestigious events and festivals such as EDC Los Angeles, Coachella, San Francisco's Black and White Ball, Wrestlemania 30, and many others.
