Yep, It is Burning Man Season! Here Comes the Art!

May 12th, 2013  |  Filed under Culture (Art & Music)

truth is beauty may 2013We have been out and about the last couple of weeks visiting some big art that is going to Burning Man this year. First we stopped by to see how Truth is Beauty is progressing. Marco Cochrane, the sculptor, says:

Truth is Beauty is intended to be a catalyst for social change; to de-objectify women and express the basic truth of femininity, a truth that is dangerous for individual women to express. They are a reminder of what we gain when we value women. My hope is to inspire men and women to take action to end violence against women, thus allowing both women and men to live fully and thrive.

Standing 55 feet tall and weighing 7,000 pounds Truth is Beauty will be constructed using:

• 25,000 feet of steel rod and pipe;

• 6,500 steel ball connection points;

• 2000 square feet of stainless steel mesh; and

• 55,000 single welds.

One thousand five hundred (1,500) individual multi-colored LED lights will be distributed throughout her body. These lights will be controlled by a custom iPad application to create a spectacular light show that will enhance and expand the visual experience.

If you would like to contribute to Truth is Beauty their Indiegogo campaign is HERE.

While we were on Treasure Island, I spoke to  Katy Boynton, the sculptor of Heartfullness.  Heartfullness was at Burning Man 2012 for the first time.  It is a 12 by 15 foot steel sculpture of a heart that has been broken and pieced back together, damaged and pieces may be missing, but this weathered heart is stronger and infinitely more interesting. Katy told us they were going to do some small scale testing for adding fire to her piece for the Playa this year, and we got to watch. Gotta love fire!

 

 

The next evening we stopped by American Steel Studios, where they were having a preview for their open studios, which will be open until 5pm today and the gallery is   open for the next couple of weeks by appointment.  Don Cain of the Department of Spontaneous Combustion is building Mens Amplio for Burning Man 2013.  The photo includes a rendering of the installation, the model and the beginning of building the brain.

    I must say you have done a fantastic job with this.
    Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Safari.
