Virtual Depictions: San Francisco – Cinematic data-driven sculpture

Created by Refik Anadol in collaboration with Kilroy Realty Corporation and SOM Architects, Virtual Depictions: San Francisco is cinematic and site-specific data-driven sculpture consisting of 90 minutes long dynamic visuals projected in the building lobby’s 40-foot-tall screen and visible from the street.

Main motivation with the project is to frame the experience with a meticulously abstract and cinematic site-specific data-driven narration. This media wall turns into a public event making phantasmagorical connections to its surroundings through carefully coordinated imagery. From particle trails, fluid simulation, fractal landscapes to geometric compositions and point cloud fly-throughs, the 12 different chapters animate the streetscape as much as the building.
