San Francisco artist (and Laughing Squid friend) Charlie Gadeken was recently commissioned by Absolut to create a uniquely pyrotechnic dance floor for their Absolut Nights series. The event took place in a glass cube that was temporarily placed in Bushveld of Johannesburg, South Africa.
In the bushveld of Johannesburg, Absolut joined forces with fire artist, Charlie Gadeken and put the power back in the party people’s hands with a new, smokin’ hot clubbing experience. Inside the club – in this instance, a giant cube made from glass and mirror – participants transformed the night by busting some moves and triggering the dance floor with their feet. The result? A pyrotechnic display where the desert landscape outside became engulfed by an explosive mixture of smoke, sparks and colour.
Holy sh*, when the weird turn pro: go Charlie! https://t.co/u0IBqolJAP (Yes, for a vodka ad, but if galleries won’t fund or show pyro art…)
