A to Z – 2023 – P is for Point Cloud

Continuing to work our way through the alphabet for the A to Z Challenge this year, we are at the letter “P.” As you know I am wandering around the streets of San Francisco looking for the interesting light installations that are part of the “Illuminate SF” project.

Today we have Point Cloud which was designed by Leo Villarreal and opened in 2019. It is a 100-foot pedestrian bridge that crosses Howard Street, connecting the two sides of Moscone Center (named for George Moscone, the Mayor of San Francisco who was assassinated with Harvey Milk).

I was able to pull over to the side of the road and get this short video to give you an idea of the light show. See if you can spot the little friend I found in the building.

There are 858 steel rods suspended from the roof with 28,288 LED lights which are individually programmed and change 30 times PER SECOND into shades of blue, yellow, orange, pink and lavender.

Best Viewing: Nighttime from the corner of Howard and Third streets. That’s just about where I was parked.

Pretty cool, huh? See you tomorrow for “Q.”

    This is amazing. They had a temporary light show like this at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden “Lightscape” exhibition over the winter, but it wasn’t permanent like this one in SF.
