“Art as Activism” Marco Cochrane and Julia Cortell
WAFDust Podcast #06
In this podcast Katie Eldridge talks to Marco Cochrane & Julia Cortell about their love, lives, and art.
Marco is best known for his series of monumental sculptures, all of which debuted at Burning Man – beginning in 2009 with Bliss Dance. Julia is an Attorney & mediator and is the co-creator of Bliss Project.
They have been partners in life and art for more than a decade, and have dedicated these works and more, to asking the question: What would life be like if women were safe?
An insightful piece about We Are From Dust’s mission in the latest edition of Artillery Magazine, focusing on our Point San Pablo Harbor exhibition, artists whose work we’re hosting, and Marian Goodell of Burning Man…

In our third podcast, Yomi Ayeni talks to Arthur Mamou Mani, architect, artist, and lecturer about building the 2019 Temple of Galaxia at Burning Man, sustainability, and the science of art.
He gives the lowdown on Catharsis – the game changing modular art structure he planned for Burning Man 2020, which may now manifest in the virtual multiverse, and how he came to the conclusion that beauty can be generated, as opposed to created.
In our second podcast, Katie Eldridge talks to Rob Fyfe about transforming Point San Pablo Harbor from a rundown junkyard into a beautiful destination that now attracts hundreds of visitors every week.
Rob talks about his first encounter with big art at Burning Man, how he came to appreciate the creativity and passion at the core of the Burner community, and how a chance encounter at the Artumnal Gathering led to hosting We Are From Dust’s inaugural exhibition.
“Art Matters” with Paige Tashner
WAFDust Podcast #01
Welcome to WAFDust the official We Are From Dust podcast. A few years ago, a team of us decided that interactive and participatory art was a pillar in our community, so we formed our non-profit to showcase the transformative power of participatory art in public places and spaces.
In this our first podcast Paige Tashner, creator of Purr Pods, talks about her life as an artist, how creating a mobile cupcake for Burning Man led to winning two Honoraria Awards, her love of cats, the skill exchange associated with creating art in the burner community, and her work with We Are From Dust.
