ATTACK THE RAMPARTS AND BE DAMNED Artist COLIN CHRISTENSEN Yes, the fire throwing trebuchet is back. Don't know what a trebuchet is? It is a mediaeval war engine that many will incorrectly identify as a catapult. And it throws stuff. But is it ART? Well, that is for you to determine. Alternatively it is a "big boys toy". It could be an item on a bucket list. Or something that throws some fire into the sky. Or an opportunity for a cool selfie. Regardless of how you see it, you are invited to pull the trigger, shout out something meaningless and launch a ball of fire. So, if nothing else, it is fun. And isn’t that what art should be?

BANANA BAR By DAVE SHEEHAN Banana Bomba It's yellow. It's mobile. It has refreshments. No it’s not a yellow cab turned Uber. It's BANANA BAR! Hop on and hop off for easy access around JRC!
CYCLESCHEMA Concept, Bikes KRISTAN ANGEL Hardware CARY WINTLE Code TIM GILCHRIST Visual Interface STEVE BERRICK Church of Belligerence Cycleschema is an experiment in human behaviour presented by the brethren behind THΣ CHURCH ΩF ΒΣLLIGΣRΣΠCΣ. An interactive bicycle facility will be unleashed upon Jilikan Rock City for the period of Blazing Swan 2017. Cycleschema is an experiment in visualising the effects of Blazing Swan on human cognitivity through code via GPS to create an organic schematic to be observed by the community on a large projected image.
DOORS OF PERCEPTION Artist WADE HARRISON "I have lived on the lip of insanity, wanting to know reasons, knocking on a door. It opens. I've been knocking from the inside.” - Rumi 04
ELECTRIC SHOE BIKE Artist DAVID CRYER The war against the double jeesuz! rages on... Will the humble shoe reign supreme in what may be a sneaker peek into Blazing Swan future cycle transport? 05
ELEMENTS By ELEMENTS Reflective platonic and trapezohedron shapes hang from a ceiling. Look into these “infinity shapes” for as long as you dare! 06
FREE THE MAN Artist DAN FREEMAN Stainless steel sculpture. Part bird, part robot, part human? 07
GENUS QUESTIONABLUS Artist NIC COMPTON As a child (and still) I enjoy beach combing hoping to find some unknown creature washed ashore. As I never did discover this elusive creature I had to create my own. Genus Questionablus is a combination of different species of marine life washed up and decomposing. The sculpture might ask questions of the state of our oceans. The Great Barrier Reef springs to mind. Or is it a great Fukushima fish somehow related to Godzilla? 08
GIANT WOMBAT MEGA FAUNA Artist ANDREW LITSTER A mega fauna wombat, that’s going to be set on fire! 09
HOPES & FEARS STEVE SOAMES (AKA POMMIE) RICHARD MORUP (AKA RISKY) A participatory art piece for radical self-expression. Fear is a constant companion to anyone stepping out of their comfort zone. Fear grows in darkness and diminishes in the light. Use the chalkboard to name your fear and expose it to the light. Erased daily. In a dark world, hope is our belief that things can change for the better. Like just about all life forms on our planet, hope is nourished by light. Express your hopes here with our playful fridge magnets. 10
KOASIS CHAINSAW SCULPTURE Artist JAY PYRATE A live action chainsaw sculpture over 2-3 days. 11
LIGHT SPEED Artist OBIGLEN MASON From the inner mind of the artist who brought you the worlds largest Chestahedron and the Pyrapus Octomyd, brings you LIGHT SPEED! A series of 10 towers, over 4 meters tall sending light between the towers at staggering 300000 km per second!! 12
OBELISK OF FIRE Artist JEREMY SHAW Made from a steel frame and plywood in the shape of short obelisk. 13
θεοφάνεια by PSYCHEDELIC BROCCOLI A four metre tall fire tornado! 14
PORTAL Artist JOHN GRONO The circle is a simple and powerful form, throughout the Cosmos; In our cells, or in the math we have uncovered; and always in our art 15
RAINBOW GATE Artist WICK Technical Lead KIRK HAWTHORN An illuminated gate of seven arches. Step through the collective vortex of seven arches to new reality. 16
RESONATION STATION Artist KAY ROCK A space for people to connect, create and resonate with each other through an interactive audio experience. Within the Resonation Station a unique experience is created that demands each participant to be present in the moment. 17
SAW DUST FLAME CANNON Artists JEREMEY SHAW and MR FIXIT Never under estimate the potential of dusty dry wood... 18
THE LAST ECHIDNA Artist WESLEY HARNEY The increasing irrelevance of our smallest denomination coupled with the 50th anniversary of the decimal system in Australia spawned the inspiration for this sculpture. The high cost of production and increasing electronic transactions prompts the question do we still need the trusty echidna? 19
TRIHIFIREWIRE Artists ROB 'KRUMPET' KIWI & FRANKY MITCHELL From the birth of fire to modern day lighting technologies, what future discoveries lay ahead for the humble electromagnetic wave photon? 20
UNFURL Artist JASON MAXLOW In the wake of the timber boom of last century, vast areas of Perth hills forest were clear felled to fuel the fires of industry. As the echoes of axe, saw and steam trains faded across the valleys, a fresh eco-friendly community and way of life emerged from the smoldering ashes. “Unfurl” is a response to the birth of new life represented here in steel as the opening of a blossom and the unfurling of a frond. 21
WORMHOLE RELOADED By TEAM WORMHOLE The Wormhole from 2016 is back with some modifications. 23
WYVERN Artist RICHARD CAPSTICK Designer PATRICK GEE Design Assistant/Media SAM CAPSTICK Media Assistant ISOBEL GEE Camp Manager SUZANNE GEE The Wyvern (mystical dragon) installation is inspired by the creativity and vibrancy of Burning Man festival, which we are excited to bring to our regional backyard Blazing Swan.
