Re: “Burning in Humboldt

I have seen the Fire Arts Movement since it began in Humboldt and have been consistently amazed by the ever evolving level of competence and creativity. I have been living for the past 8 months in Sydney, Australia, and I can tell you that Humboldt is very lucky to have the caliber or fire artists that we have compared to such a large city as Sydney (4 million people). I loved going to the InferKNOW parties and it makes me sad that the county has presented them with such a difficult path to legitimacy as a real event. They came to the county to seek permits and instead of being given a go ahead, they were slapped with all sorts of requirements and really REALLY expensive fees. I commend Infernow for trying to navigate the red tape, but don't blame them at all for quitting. Humboldt County Board of Supervisors and the rest of its permitting agencies should have recognized the great value that this type of art has in our community and done whatever it could to create a cutting edge, safe, and artistic festival to bring talented fire artists together and put on one helluva show.
I would like to thank all the fire artist mentioned in this article, for I am very honored to know and love all of you. Thank you Tisha for bringing this to the attention of our community. I can't wait to come back to Humboldt and see some FIRE!
