Goodbye Art

Phil Hansen spent the last year creating pieces of art work that he destroyed immediately after completion. Hansen puts it simply, "This is to help me be more creative and spontaneous." Hansen started with large scale portraits made out of leaves and pinecones, and then moved on to syringes, tricylcles and garbage. My personal favorite is a portrait of Jimi Hendrix lighting his guitar on fire made out of stacked matches. You can watch the project being built, and then burned, below. And check out his website with all of the Goodbye Art projects, here.
