Long Modified Bench San Francisco

The Exploratorium is pleased to announce a newly commissioned work by Danish artist Jeppe Hein. Hein’s looping Long Modified Bench San Francisco animates the public promenade of the Embarcadero, one of San Francisco’s busiest pedestrian walkways.

Literally turning the standard-issue park bench on its head, the project’s sculptural forms inspire play and improvisation as well as new forms of social engagement and communication. This site-specific installation reminds us that social behavior is shaped by art and design, and vice versa.
