Sculpture is an energy loop, a wood fire heats a steam boiler, that powers a steam engine, that turns a generator, that makes electricity to power a digital camera, that makes a digital image of the fire.
The digital fire is presented on a flat screen monitor inside the gallery offering viewers a comparison between pure "authentic" fire and a self-generated modern alternative.
