San Francisco: The Creators Project Event

The Creators Project – sponsored by Vice Magazine and Intel – blew it out of the water with its free (with an RSVP, and no, not everyone got a ticket) event by the Bay at Fort Mason this past weekend. The winds whistled post three-day-rainstorm and around the parking lot, onlookers oooohed-and-awed over the light installations. The first thing you saw when you walked in was a psychedelic – you felt like you were on drugs even if you weren’t – large-scale cube installation called Origin by United Visual Artists. White light flashed around the cube to a bass-heavy composition by composer Scanner, like protons racing in your brain.

Off the Grid served up the usual lovely variety of curbside grub, and alcohol was a-flowing. But one of the coolest things about the event was the laid-back but not overly-packed spontaneous feeling of it all. And when the clouds opened up, the Bay revealed an almost spiritual sunset over the Golden Gate Bridge.  It kind of had a Burning Man vibe, on a smaller scale of course.

Festival performances included (among others) HEALTH, Squarepusher, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and a DJ set by James Murphy, Pat Mahoney and Nancy Whang of LCD Soundsystem. Have a look at some snapshots by photographer Sean Donovan.
