Wooden Match Installation Nearly Burns Down San Francisco Art Gallery

Imagine that!  A huge wall installation constructed from 50 thousand wooden matches almost burned the entire mother to the ground when it was lit on fire with a blow torch.  But the artsyness factor was an overwhelming success.  

Prior to the indoor bonfire, the piece and concept was actually quite dope.  However, due to the ridiculous fire hazard, I think maybe artist Claire Fontaine should consider putting a giant plexiglass box around her work next time.
