Large Fire Tornado

Large Fire Tornado

No GLOW without fire. Fire is the mother of light. It is nature in all its devastating beauty. Artist and technical engineer Ivo Schoofs witnessed what happened when a tornado swept over a forest fire, propelling the flames many meters into the air. He wondered if this could be controlled and reproduced. After successfully creating a scaled model of a fire tornado, he and his team have now built a fascinating light installation that showcases a piece of Nature’s Architecture in a spectacular way.

The Large Fire Tornado is formed by a powerful fire source and 36 industrial fans in a 12-meter-high installation. In collaboration with GLOW, the Large Fire Tornado premiered in Eindhoven in 2015. Light in its primal form.
