Treasure Island and San Francisco lost an old friend this week. Bliss Dance, the incredible Marco Cochrane sculpture, that has called Treasure Island home for nearly 5 years, has been removed. The piece will be restored over the next few months. Since Bliss Dance was only supposed to be displayed for 6 months on TI, she was never coated or protected from the elements. It is amazing that she has lasted this long. The internal structural sections are starting to rust and need to be fixed soon or it could be a total loss.
It has been an amazing few days hanging out and filming this group of artists and amazing people. Their dedication and perseverance to help make Marco's artwork come to life was a beautiful thing to see. Every one of them has their own special talents and personalities that mesh well together. I have so many images and videos, it won't seem like Bliss is gone for quite while if you follow me :)
Katy Boynton and Karma Theriault, could you tag the rest of the Bliss Dance Crew?
This was her last sunset still standing....
If you want to help support these amazing sculptures, please go over to the R-Evolution funding page (https://www.indiegogo.com/pro…/r-evolution-the-woman-stands…) to help get Marco Cochrane's next lady to the playa. There are only 6 more days left and they are far from their goal. Even if you can't donate share this post and help in another way.

The process should take about 6 months and should be done in November.
Fun Fact: Bliss has about 55K weld joints!
When I was shooting this at 4am Tuesday morning a car rolled up and Michael Holden gets out! He was enroute to his new studio/living space in Hollywood from Seattle. It is so good to run into shooting buddies in the middle of the night. I think we were the only ones who came out to see her in this state of dismemberment.
I am still dumping all the video I captured the past few days on Treasure Island. I will try to share a few clips soon....
