Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

On the 10th of Feb I will be debuting a lava based art work with my friend Amanda. Light Night happens in a few cities other than Nottingham, but it's basically a festival of light themed art works and performances across the city centre. We are taking over the studio at the Broadway cinema, I'm building a forest of lava lamps and Amanda will be telling stories. The idea with the lamps is that many of them will be at the stage where the wax erupts into strange rock-like formations and people will peer into them searching for shapes. Like cloud-watching or a Rorschach inkblot test.

I'm going include other home-created lava and non lava based lamps, but the forest will be essentially 20 or so Hot Rocks lamps.

At the moment I've just about solved the technical issues or running the lamps, but now I have to write a risk assessment (yawn) and film some flowing lava for a projection.

I'll put up some pics when I can. if I have time I'll show some pics of the lamps I'm building for it too. Right now I have to go and drill holes in an old tea light holder.
