Winner of the Burning Man contest, Truth is Beauty is a sculpture by artist Marco Cochrane. It is made of steel rods and balls welded together which are then covered in stainless steel mesh. Lighting in the sculpture creates an ever-changing piece of art.

In the Czech Republic, there is a medieval church long abandoned by the town Lukova after an ill-omened roof collapse during a funeral service half a century ago. With decades of decay running unchecked, this hauntingly historic edifice was on the verge of closure--until the ghosts arrived. First it was just nine shrouded figures, seated silently in the pews. Then ghostly parishioners continued to appear, until an entire phantom congregation had gathered, shrouded and pensive, in hushed rows. Created by art student Jakub Hadrava, the eerie sculptures were created with a purpose, “…to remind people the church had a history and a past.” Video Link: www.youtube.com
