Building Fire Art Installation

fond Sensational Light Project in Vancouver: Fire with Fire

Although it might look like it, this building isn't actually on fire. The conflagration is a choreographed art installation by Isabelle Hayeur in Downtown Eastside, Vancouver. The fire is created via video projectors and 3 blu-ray players. The effect, however, is completely realistic. Check out the video below to see the ignition to all out 5 alarm. (No word if the fire department actually showed up. I'm guessing they were clued in on the exhibit.)

How ironic would it be if the place actually caught fire and burned down?

I'm with the OP, I bet the artist informed the fire department beforehand. For example, where I live, if you plan on doing a huge barbecue that'll create a lot of smoke, you just let the fire department know beforehand so they'll know to calm down any panicked calls they might get.

Looks more like a real life troll. Where's the artist statement to this, bet it would be great reading.

Yeah, it just seems wrong.

Something about this feels ... illegal to me.
