Art Installation FIRE is designed as a pavilion, a place for meditation and conversation.
The character of the architecture refers to dynamics, fluidity and shading of fire. The wooden
beam stacking is built by rotating each of the following elements at an angle of 2.5 degrees to
the previous one, shaping 9 symbolic flames. The arrangement of the seats inside the
pavilion is taken from the principle of the campfire, where sitting in a circle unifies people.
Art installation FIRE has been created as a result of cooperation between municipalities of Rugaji, Balvi, Vilaka, Baltinava and Karsava - project „Good Nature in Northern Latgale, Discover Nature Explorer in Yourself”. Five art installations in five cities are made to bring attention of people to nature, to teach respect, understand and preserve it. Art installations are gift for Latvia in its 100th birthday in 2018.
