Walking down the street the other day, I happened upon this.... it's called SOMA.
Turns out, this amazing sculpture will be a new addition on the Embarcadero for at least a year. It's still under construction but from what I can tell it will be amazing. I spoke to one of the women on site and she gave me some background information. The artists are a group known as the Flaming Lotus Girls. Initially the piece was funded by the Black Rock Arts Foundation (you might have seen some other exhibits by them throughout the city, The Raygun Gothic Rocketship at Pier 14, since 2010, was another incredible addition to the city) and showed at Burning Man in 2009. They are refurbishing it for this newest exhibition- it's going to be interactive, people can program the lights into different patterns and colors. I can't wait to see the finished product and it's another reason to love the city.
