"The Play's The Thing..."

“… guilty creatures, sitting at a play,
Have by the very cunning of the scene
Been struck so to the soul that presently
They have proclaim'd their malefactions;
For murder, though it have no tongue, will speak
With most miraculous organ”

-Hamlet, Act2, Scene2

Our Burning Man Art Installation called “TruthBurn” is aimed at eliciting the same kind of response for truth that Shakespeare’s Hamlet sought.
Our plan is to raise the funds for and build this twenty foot tall 40 ton structural steel art piece with the 8 foot tall steel letters “Truth” engulfed in flames. Towards the close of the Burning Man Art festival, the piece will be brought down in spectacular fashion by two steel melting thermate cutter charges set midway on the two massive foot square steel support columns.
