A Short Mesmerizing Film Featuring Burning Strands of Steel Wool That Mimic the Tragic Beauty of Wildfires

Filmmaker Kim Pimmel has created the gorgeous short macro film “Wildfire” in which he set strands of standard steel wool on fire in a controlled environment. The burning fibers pass around the flame to others rather quickly lighting up more in a fiery chain reaction, mimicking the heartbreaking movement and the tragic beauty of a real wildfire.

Kim Pimmel uses steel wool from the hardware store to create a meditation on the tragic beauty of wildfires.
