Description:

An interactive installation by San Francisco-based sculptural artist Charles Gadeken and Australia-based D.V. Rogers, TABULA displays information about the world around us and below our feet. The dynamic artwork interprets an open and live seismic data feed made public by the United States Geological Survey (USGS), creating an illuminating display of seismic light on geographical images. Colors change throughout the week and data sets throughout the hours. Thus, TABULA is a map, a clock, and a calendar. The seismic light work consists of 63 RGB light panel fins mounted along two walls and represents the dynamic and constant movement of tectonic plates and the resulting effect large earthquakes can have on communities living above active seismic zones. An informational touch screen is located on the ground floor of the building, highlighting earthquake preparedness and awareness as well as explaining the seismic art of TABULA and the data that is being represented.
