Bringing San Francisco's Dewey Monument to Life

Help us bring the dewey monument to life in 3D


Distinguished choreographer Raissa Simpson’s Push Dance Company will commission British video artist Ben Wood and his collaborator technologist David Mark to present a seldom seen 3D dance installation called, Bitter Melon on May 25-28, 2012 in Union Square downtown San Francisco. Steeped in the cultural histories of African American and Filipino San Francisco, the pair will capture creative conversations in live performance and three-dimensional film projection.

Two large-scale 3D Projectors will be placed on the concession buildings adjacent to Dewey Monument projecting a vibrant illuminated 3D image onto both sides of the monument.
