As of Monday, a new 24 foot tall sculpture was established at the biotech company Genesis’ Towers in South San Francisco. The beautiful sculpture constructed of mesh and steel, depicts a man and woman standing on top of a DNA strand. They are holding their hands together to form the shape of a heart. The sculpture’s designer, Marco Cochrane quoted that he feels the design embodies the “living-giving science” that happens at Genesis Towers.
Marco Cochrane is a true advocate for women. He was born in Venice by his American artist parents and raised in sunny Northern California. He states that he identifies with the feminine struggle of injustice. He believes, “feminine energy and power are critical to the world’s balance.” Marco is a self-taught artist who began sculpting in his 20s. Per his website, “Marco believes that the time we have to solve the problems that threaten our existence on this planet is running out, and that the key to finding real, lasting solutions is bringing feminine energy into balance with male energy: a global shift, already underway.”
