In this slow-motion video, Barber appears to be gently holding a paper replica of his head. It is in fact a paper lantern meant to float, but just as it begins to lift in an updraft, it suddenly catches fire. The artist is left reaching for the effigy as it dissipates, creating extended moments where the fire appears to float from his hand.
