Heavy Meta Car Art
Heavy Meta is a 30’ long, 19’ tall metallic dragon vehicle with interactive fire, sound, kinetic, and light components. Built atop a GM bus, the project is entirely designed and fabricated in Toronto. Its skin is clad in hand-cut, hand-welded sheet metal, and its wings and mouth articulate and shoot fire. Destined for Burning Man, and located in Toronto when not on tour around North America, Heavy Meta is Canada’s largest art car. It has appeared at music festivals, Maker Faires, and regional burns in New York, Ontario, Quebec, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Ohio.

New this year at the Opening and all day Saturday will be the Heavy Meta Dragon. It’s 30 feet long, 19 feet high, shoots massive fireballs along with special light effects and a state of the art sound system!

Event information is continually being posted and updated on our Bon Soo website and on our Facebook page Facebook/MrBonSoo.
