LOVE, by Alexandr Milov, from Odessa, Ukraine.­

Here’s what Milov wrote about the piece on the festival’s website: 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 (night falls) the children start 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.­

It is the first time that a Ukrainian artist received a Burning Man grant to create his art.­

Nice sculpture, but I was quite disappointed that the artist put a sign "Dangerous - Do not climb".­ Obviously the frame of this structure was very sturdy and well constructed with solid metal tubes, so there was no risk of damaging it by a few people climbing over it.­

Climbing art installations is a big part of interacting with the art at Burning Man, and the artists are not responsible if people fall or get hurt when climbing over their pieces.­

So, please, if you build art for Burning Man, build it strong enough so that people can climb your art! And do not discourage them from climbing.­
