David Best's most notable works are monumental, highly articulated wooden temples for the Burning Man festivals. For Finding Time, he created four sculptures for the plinths at the ends of Columbus’s Broad Street Bridge. Spire-like and constructed of intricately cut wood, each sculpture was unique, although all recalled the shapes of elaborate towers or finials. The bridge was designed with sculptural elements in mind, but they were never completed. Best's temporary project brought new life to these prominent—yet empty—features of Columbus's major downtown bridge.
