This work is an investigation into the materiality of a chair. A poplar frame was wrapped with rebar wire then burned in an outdoor pit. The remains were exhibited along with video documentation.

*Larry Harvey is the founder and producer of Burning Man, an annual art festival that takes place in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada, where on the final day a giant man-like effigy is burned.
