Video: Origin, a 40-Foot Light Sculpture at Fort Mason

This eye- and mind-bending display of light and sound called Origin recently appeared at Fort Mason. The work, which appeared in New York City last year and was originally built for the Coachella music festival, was created by UnitedVisualArtists, an art-and-design practice based in London.

It's the largest interactive work made by the group to date, measuring 40 feet square. People were invited to enter the sculpture and lay down, viewing it vertically from the inside. The creators used software to program the metal sculpture to respond to a score composed for the project by electronic musician Scanner.

It was part of the San Francisco 2012 Creators Project, put on jointly by Intel Corp. and media company Vice.
