Burning Man 2013 “Truth is Beauty” by Artist Marco Cochrane is truly an inspirational piece. I love this piece! It is BEAUTIFUL! “Truth is Beauty is the second in the series of three monumental sculptures, The Bliss Project, by Marco Cochrane of a woman, Deja Solis, expressing her humanity.” Truth is Beauty is a 55 feet tall, debuted at Burning Man 2013 and will be permanently placed at the San Leandro Tech Center in the San Francisco Bay Area in September 2016. These sculptures are intended to demand a change in perspective… to be catalysts for social change. They are intended to challenge the viewer to see past the sexual charge that has developed around the female body which has been used for power and control, to the human being. Not only is this piece beautiful, but, it is meaningful and their is a statement behind it. The pieces are intended to de-objectify women and inspire men and women to take action to end violence against women, thus allowing both women and men to live fully and thrive. For Truth is Beauty, Marco captures Deja, who has always been self-conscious of her height, standing on her tip-toes, arms outstretched and head thrown back in a moment of radical self-acceptance and love.
