San Francisco: A Bridge Of Lights

 

Something unusual and fairy-like is about to happen.  On March 5th, the Bay bridge will be wrapped in 25,000 computer animated LED lights, to become the largest light sculpture ever created…

This installation is Pharaonic with its 1.8 mile width and 500 foot height.  The project is the work of  Leo Villareal, an artist who’s been expressing himself through lights and technology from the Burning Man’s desert  to the finest Museums across the country and world.  For this event, set to last two years, Villareal uses a proprietary software with algorithms inspired by the surroundings: cars, ocean sounds, wind, and wildlife…which create endlessly unique computerized patterns. The Bay bridge light show can be seen from front row at the Embarcadero. Although,  when the legendary fog of the Bay will come rolling in, through the cascading and dancing lights, it could create something no one anywhere has ever seen…
