In this video, produced from my San Francisco in Jell-O series, the Marina District is rattled by an earthquake and subsequent tidal wave. The Palace of Fine Arts and surrounding houses shake and become engulfed in a gelatinous flood. As the “water” subsides, the neighborhood melts away into a messy ooze. 

I created the original sculpture of the Palace of Fine Arts for an exhibition at the Exploratorium to commemorate the centennial of the 1906 earthquake and fire. The sculpture was exhibited on a shake table with dry ice to mimic the iconic San Francisco fog. Photographs of the sculpture can be found in the Installations section of my website. I also created limited edition photographs for purchase.
