The gleaming spires of the Moltensteelman Wishing Portal bring forward a colorful flaming fantasy world that is operated by magic lamp and fueled by the hopes and dreams of a thousand souls. Flame bursts are created by audience participation and colorful translucent LED panels create endless variation in this visceral and compelling large scale flame art installation.
