Pop! is a performance experience involving fire, heavy metal and high pressure. The interactive mechanical work is used to burst 1kg of popcorn simultaneously in a very loud explosion. The popcorn is absolutely delicious, puffed to near-spherical shapes when the hammer drops to equalise the internal pressure of the main chamber.

Pop! was premiered at Kiwiburn 2016 and uses custom, hand-made and imported components. 

 The moment from which the artwork gets its name. The pink material is a parachute used to catch the popcorn as it flies through the air. Best enjoyed with salt and a drizzle of olive oil.
