Entwined Meadow is an installation by Charles Gadeken. The exhibit brings the viewer to a whimsical land where visitors explore paths and sit under one of three metal sculpted trees. The trees range from 12 to 20 feet tall with colorful and ever-changing illuminated canopies as large as 30 feet wide. In addition to the trees, flower cluster sculptures composed of 2,000 LED lights at varying heights invite a dynamic and dazzling experience filled with radiating light and color. The lighting effects are inspired by nature and build a sense of magic and wonder: sensations such as raindrops, lightning, thunderstorms, windblown grass and leaves, ripples on a pond are translated through color and duration.
The installation opened on December 10th in Golden Gate Park’s Peacock Meadow near the Conservatory of Flowers. The project is made possible through a partnership between San Francisco’s Recreation and Park Department and the San Francisco Parks Alliance for the Park’s 150th Anniversary finale. Numerous professionals, arts supporters, and volunteers make Gadeken’s large-scale installations possible!
