“A burnt match” is a sculpture of burnt match with a brunch grown out above. This is a 4-meter copy of a non-burned match made of 160 kilograms of steel. The main purpose of this project is to attract people’s attention to streets’ pollution and lack of greenery in cities. The match was symbolically placed on Sichovyh Striltsiv street as it is considered to be the most air polluted street in the city.

  • 160 kg of metal was used and 1000 dollars were spent to create this art project.

  • Although the main purpose of it is ecological, many people believe that it motivates to give up smoking.

  • Sculptor took the idea of a branch with a green leaf from the Ginkgo biloba tree, which is known as a stimulant of mental activity.
