San Francisco Jazz Festival

November 21, 2014
Designed as a temporary retail, exhibit, and event ticket sales space for Jazz in the City, a San Francisco non-profit, this installation at the Embarcadero Center spatially expresses the rhythmic variation and improvisational interpretation that characterizes Jazz music. Inexpensive and donated materials are used as horizontal and vertical planes and solids, creating a 3D asymmetrical composition of space.
