Burning man is a huge, yearly festival in the desert of Nevada with tons of good music and most importantly amazing art.
I have always wanted to go and was actually going to this year but other things got in the way.
But thank god for the internet and for cameras so that we still can get close to the events and still enjoy the art without even being there.
One pice from this years Burning Man that really caught my eye and probably is, without exaggerating, the most powerful work of art I have ever seen.
The pice is called “Love” and is made by the Ukrainian sculptor Alexander Milov.
The pice is two wire-frame adults sitting back to back with their inner children reaching out to each other from within. At night the inner children would light up like two lanterns.
Milov wrote about the piece on the festival’s website saying:
“It demonstrates a conflict between a man and a woman as well as the outer and inner expression of human nature. Their inner selves are executed in the form of transparent children, who are holding out their hands through the grating. As it’s getting dark the children chart to shine. This shining is a symbol of purity and sincerity that brings people together and gives a chance of making up when the dark time arrives.”
All I have to say is I completely fell in love with this pice and felt I needed to share it with you guys.
So insanely beautiful and so extremely relatable.
