USA Match Map by Claire Fontaine

French artist Claire Fontaine created this stunning map entirely made of green matches that were inserted into the wall of the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art in 2011, and which were then set on fire. The same installation did not go as planned in a San Francisco gallery more recently, but the result is amazing and a video is even available. Enjoy!
