Live Performance Opening Night, Thursday May 16 at 8:06PM + Video Replays May 18 & 19 at Sundown

On the opening night of ArtPadSF, the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAM/PFA) will present an outdoor video installation by Bay Area-based artist Andrew Benson, curated by BAM/PFA Video Curator Steve Seid. Shine Bright Plastic Diamonds is a digital mural that will be projected onto the six-story building adjacent to the Phoenix Hotel. Benson has created software that incorporates a number of image sources into one rushing, time-based artwork that continually reinvents itself in exuberant and saturated colors. Fairgoers can catch a glimpse of their own silhouette as the artwork will incorporate images of the fair via live footage capture.
