Burning Chairs by Hongtao Zhou

Hongtao Zhou is a Wisconsin-based sculptor who has created a set of burning chairs out of wax. Call it “Burniture.” According to the artist, over time the chair will burn, melt, and collapse. The chairs have an icy appearance, but generate heat and begin to weaken as the wicks burn.
