Artist Spencer Finch’s candle art installations are an ode to Emily Dickinson and her literary genius.

The inspiration for this vibrant and interactive piece was the year 1862 and its occurrences. In that year, Emily Dickinson completed 366 poems within the span of 365 days, marking her place in the literary world. The art piece is titled 366 (Emily Dickinson’s Miraculous Year) to immortalize this accolade in her career. Finch’s piece features 366 candles and one is burned each day to commemorate a poem. The magnificent part of this is that each candle is color coordinated to a hue mentioned in each poem and creates a sort of index of Dickinson’s sentiments.

Finch’s candle art installations are vibrant, spirited and offer insight into the life and times of Emily Dickinson.
