Even though it’s been falling apart for decades now, Treasure Island is still a really fun place to explore. This is what the future is going to look like once the zombies take over and there aren’t any city workers or DHARMA Initiative left to maintain all of our monuments to excess.

In just a few years Treasure Island is going to look radically different. What a great excuse for San Francisco to go spend the day on this pocket of earth that is out of step with time right before it gets an urban facelift.

UPDATE # 1

Great video of ground zero footage from bird415

My favorite part is the kid on the speakers who’s far more interested in his gameboy than with anything that’s going on at the park party.

Seize the day, my friend.

Treasure Island is a weird time capsule.

Like most Navy housing units, the architecture is 50 years outdated and it feels like a pocket of earth that is out of step with time.

There are also several abandoned units; they look exactly like any kind of dorm you would see on any California college campus.

Eucalyptus trees grow like weeds and have consumed some patio areas or have fallen down dead and untouched on sidewalks. Amazing that there’s all this abandoned property on multi-million dollar real estate that also has a priceless view of the San Francisco skyline.

Perfect location for a Sunset party.

Hopefully we’ll be able to do this again next year.

UPDATE

Nice video from nilia75.

Some San Francisco love from the Wighnomy Brothers

Serpent Mother. FREE art opening on Treasure Island.

11 03 2009

Flaming Lotus Girls Serpent Mother 1

The new art piece from The Flaming Lotus Girls is this amazing 168 foot stainless steal snake. It has a hydraulic joy-stick control panel that moves around her 20-foot neck and head that they encourage the audience to play with.

Flaming Lotus Girls Serpent Mother 8

This was their free art gallery opening on Treasure Island on Saturday night. An inside art gallery opening so minus the flames that you would see on the playa. Some people might call this large-scale art, but lately I’ve been thinking The Serpent Mother has got to be the single coolest action figure in America right now (or at least the coolest action figure in America till next year’s Burning Man)

If I were an eccentric millionaire type, I would be commissioning my favorite Burning Man artists to build me pieces like this all the time. And then I’d hire David Best to build me a mansion that I could store them all in. And let’s not forget my master plan of buying up old missile silo bases and storing my extra Burning Men in them to survive the coming apocalypse. I’m telling you, when I win the lottery I already have a plan on what I’m going to do with the money. I’m going to buy up Burning Man art pieces like other people buy comic books.

And in the warehouse area next door there was a huge loading dock area with the Homouroboros – the spinning barrel of monkeys tree.

Burning Man Batcave 2

Here’s a video of the Homouroboros from Burning Man 2007.

And the rest of the warehouse was a loading dock area for Burning Man art cars and other art projects.

You can see the blueprints of an art car on the side of this bus.

Burning Man Batcave 3

It’s like if Batman was into Burning Man, this would be his Batcave.

Generations from now archeologists are going to have a field day trying to document and explain all of these amazing large scale Burning Man artifacts that they are going to find hidden away.
