DON’T WORRY, it’s just a 75-foot tornado of fire.

Note: This article was in regards to an on-line confessional I created for a fire art installation/performance at Burning Man in 1998.
The Internet may be the world’s largest confessional. Its paradoxical combination of anonymity and intimacy provides fertile ground for admissions that might never be aired in ”real” life. Even when real names are known, the medium — a step removed from physical contact and thus, perhaps, from perceived consequences — somehow evokes a closed-curtain, hush-toned closeness that draws people out in occasionally astonishing ways.
