This large-scale video-based work by artist Jim Campbell is a dynamic LED installation at the crown of Salesforce Tower. The exterior of the top six floors are softly lit with 11,000 LEDs together capable of displaying low resolution moving color imagery.
The content of the light installation will be ever changing. Multiple cameras are placed around San Francisco, each capturing different elements of the City, monitoring the rhythms of the tide and wind, the patterns of the weather, the migration of the birds and the daily ebbs and flows of human activity.
Every night a synopsis of that particular day in the life of the City will be projected for communal viewing, visible from 20 miles away.

Midnight Artist Series:
“The Roof Garden” by Sarah Klein
July 1st – 31st, Midnight – 1AM
“The Roof Garden uses the venerable storytelling form of hand shadows, and features silhouettes of hands holding assorted flowers and plant cuttings. In the sequence of images, the silhouettes morph into kaleidoscopic patterns, turning the tower into one huge flower.”
