burning man sculpture
This was the second sculpture by artist Marco Cochrane to debut at The Burning Man as part of his project called “Bliss”. In 2013, the Californian artists whose aim is to empower women, welded steel, rods and balls and then covered his sculpture in stainless steel mesh “skin”, which has interactive lighting effects. Each sculpture of the Bliss Project by Marco is at least 40 ft tall.
Crude Awakening by Dan Das Mann, Karen Cusolito, Black Rock FX, Pyrokinetics, Nate Smith, Mark Perez, and MonkeyBoy, 2007 Photo by I Love Trees Like the majority of American political projects, this creation is laced in controversy. The main theme of this installation was to envisage the downfall of the US Empire and fossil-fueled civilization. What better way to do that than with 900 gallons of jet fuel and 2,000 gallons of liquid propane?
'Another Place' consists of life-like cast iron sculptures spread across Crosby Beach in the North-West of England. They are made using casts of the artist's own body (Antony Gormley) and there are 100 in total. Each one weighs 650 kilos and they are all pointing out to sea. When the tide comes in they are submerged, and they have unfortunately raised alarm occasionally as people think they are real people drowning - oops!
