Illumacanth, by: Rebecca Anders

From the Burning Man website: The Illumacanth is a massive fishy monster surging up from the ground, with mouth agape and brain alight.­ Its dark, deeply textured exterior surrounds a bright, reflective interior, into which one may venture through its toothy jaws.­ Elevated over its open head is a halo of silver bird-fish which dance and spin.­ Flame effects and undulating lights enliven this mysterious beast, and invite the participant to rest on its fins, gather inside, and sneak through its gills.­ The Illumacanth is a free-standing, interactive sculptural installation made primarily of metal.­ It provides seating and gathering space, and features flame and light effects as well as kinetic elements.­
