The Steel Yard 2014

9th Annual Halloween Iron Pour

A group of students and alumni at Massachusetts College of Art and Design (MassArt) went to The Steel Yard in Rhode Island to participate in their 9th Annual Halloween Iron Pour, theme? Mad Scientist.

The iron pour was a performance pour we filled everything we possibly could with iron, pumpkins, ice blocks, frankenstein and many other things. 

A performance pour is just what is sounds like---the emphasis is on art as performance and we get to show all the cool things that can happen with heat and metals and fire.  The production pours, in contrast, are less showy, and the results usually are finished days later, long after the "audience" has gone home.

The video below is from the Mad Scientist themed performance pour. 

Enjoy the clip!
