Charles Gadeken’s Tabula is the next evolution of a previous Downtown Palo Alto display, Aurora, now off in Australia. Tabula is another full-scale, building-sized LED installation whose display will be controlled by actual seismic data from the US Geological Service. Tabula is scheduled to be unveiled on October 21st, 2016 but if you just can’t wait for its opening, tide yourself over with this YouTube preview.
Some of the Burning Man art permanently installed in San Francisco is kids’ stuff, and we mean that in a good way. Tykes, toddlers, and wee ones are delighted daily by Jennifer Alexander’s Sol Flor, a series of colorful mosaics installed in the grass grounds of Juri Commons (25th St and Guerrero ST, San Francisco). While this isn’t some giant sculpture of towering Burning Man art, Sol Flor was made possible by a grant from Burning Man Arts (formerly the Black Rock Arts Foundation) and the repurposing, recycling, and trash-modifying impresarios of ScrapEden.
