El Pulpo Mecanico the fire-breathing octopus is headed to Inglewood!

The spectacular two-story, fire-breathing mechanical octopus from Californian artist Duane Flatmo and special effects mastermind Jerry Kunkel is making its Canadian debut as part of Beakerhead 2014 and Find It's final 2014 Inglewood Night Market on Friday, Sept. 12!

Constructed primarily out of recycled junk from the local scrap yard, El Pulpo is a spectacular interactive sculpture that, as with all things Beakerhead, ingeniously combines art and technology.
