Michael Verdon's "Temple of Transformance" was meant to burn. On it were messages from participants, some people sending a message up to the heavens, others burning away their burdens.

Verdon spent months designing the work and building it with 20 volunteers.
"It creates a space for people to come in and share their stores of loss, their fears, their struggles, their hopes," Verdon said.
Some of the messages are heart-rending. One read, "Dear Mom, I know you killed yourself thinking I never loved you and that I would never forgive, but you are wrong." Others tell stories of rape.

But there are love letters, too. "This is one I wrote for my dear husband," said message-writer Amarjit Rathore. She read: "I love my sweetheart, Juggy."
The artist said the fire would help people let go.

Now I need to ask about the release of carbon due to the fire, and how it will contribute to the whole global warming thing.

Bullshit -

The Goracle (and Nobel Peace Prize Winner, and son of the racist senator, Albert Gore, Sr.) has just declared that this bonfire has contributed to the extinction of the polar bear.
