Full Description

Fire Orks are lights on fire, fast traces of light on fire. They are volatile speed lines crossing the space in symmetric movements. Fire Orks are everything and nothing: a portrait of lights suspended in a dark night. Electricity stands for the modern Man as fire did for our ancestors - It is Light! And when there is Light there is Life. Our lives are much of organized energy, and light comes with it. The fascination with Light lies upon our existences too. A single flame has the same power and mistery (the duration) of life. And as it glows and moves, it stands and moves and glows, on and on, far beyond the darkness. Technology recreates the mistery of Light and Energy with the same old questions about our Existence. It brings us knowledge, enduring our brief existences. It is more than a tale of desire, it is the ever fascination beyond the limits of our nature.

Fire Orks is dedicated to Geir Jenssen (alias Biosphere) and Pete Namlook's electronic music - the Fires of Ork.
