In the tradition of Exploratorium artist Bob Miller and his Light Walks, come explore bouncing, dancing light at Sun Swarm. Chris Bell, a site-specific installation artist and sculptor, collaborated with the Exploratorium to create the piece between Piers 15 and 17 on the Embarcadero. In Sun Swarm, clusters of tiny mirrors on steel rods reach up from a series of pier pilings, collecting and dispersing bits of sunlight across nearby structures and swaying with the tide in unpredictable ways. In 2019, Chris redesigned and reinstalled Sun Swarm at the Piers.
