The Elemental Experience at Millstone Hill 59 Little John Road, Websterville, VT Saturday, June 23, 2012 • 2pm to 11pm

The Flaming Vulture of Rockfire, Vermont

Friday June 22nd- The artists Andy Moerlein & Donna Dodson will be on site building a 20 ft wide by 10 ft long soaring vulture with saplings and straw in anticipation of the performance and ritual burning on Saturday June 23rd.

Saturday, June 23rd- 10pm The artists, Moerlein & Dodson will light the soaring vulture as it soars aflame into infinity, burning itself into collective memory with a fiery flaming line that recedes into a smoldering ember.

The vulture is a hunter in the valley, cliffs , mountains & forests. With its ever watchful eye. Its presence provokes death, when carrion rests nearby. The profile of the vulture is its signature. The fire sculpture will celebrate this winged creature, in a temporary piece made up of natural materials- here, inspiring awe and then gone.

Update: Julie Orfirer captured the event on video.
