About the Work
San Francisco is a city positioned within a unique oceanic environment. The city is surrounded by dramatic tidal dynamics, temperature fluctuations, nutritional currents, and powerful waves. 'Sky Waves' is a piece of video art that attempts to bring the magic of San Francisco's powerful ocean waves all the way up to the 1000 foot height of the Salesforce tower.
