San Francisco 1966 – 1970
49″ x 98″
This sculpture has been created from the defining LP record covers and posters and events of this period in the city that came to define the counter culture of the late 60s. The street network of San Francisco has been cut through the LP record covers from the Jimi Hendrix experience, The Grateful Dead, Big Brother and The Holding Co, Jefferson Airplane and others. The background has been cut in white from seminal posters from the period like the POW WOW in the park, The Human BE in in Golden gate park and the legendary 1966 Trips Festival with Ken kesey.
The interior text in the sculpture is excerpted from “Howl” by Alan Ginsberg and lines from the song by The Mama and Papa’s “If you’re going to San Francisco”
