Follow Your Bliss

Camp Bojon commissioned an Art Car for burning man last year from an artist named marco cochrane. marco operates his own studio on Treasure Island and achieved supreme legendary status at the burn in 2010 when he unveiled a forty foot steel sculpture of a dancing woman, called Bliss Dance.

the Art Car marco built for our camp was the talk of burning man last year, and it truly was a masterpiece. marco started with a military amphibious truck and stripped it down to the base frame and then worked his magic (photos below).

anyhoo, just caught a video of marco that i wanted to share. in the vid, marco references a quote from joseph campbell as part of what has inspired his journey down the artist path: "Follow your bliss and doors will open where you didn't know doors existed."

well, my friends, that is the essence of bojon! follow your bliss and doors will open:

here's the vid:

and here are a few pix of marco's work:
