Temple of Inner Fire is the collaborative sculpture built by the Introduction to Studio class at Linfield College during the 2012 January term. On April 20, 2012 it was burned to the ground in a celebration to complete the cycle of collaboration and creation. The Introduction to Studio class included students Michael K. Carrillo, Nicholas Fairhart, Abe Harder-Cattell, Sherilyn Harrington, Bryce Hayunga, Cameron Howser, Marina Jablonski, Ashley Kimi, Tim Marl, Joey Paysinger, Cole Perry, Chloe Shields, Kate Straube, Addison Wisthoff, and Dawn Wyruchowski.

Photographer's Notes

Attendees are encouraged to write messages directly on the sculpture or on slips of paper that are then tucked into the sculpture. Through the ritual act of burning, these sentiments are offered up and released into the universe.
