  1. Sonic Runway

    November 20, 2017 - March 9, 2018 @ San Jose City Hall

    The City of San José Office of Cultural Affairs in collaboration with Burning Man Project present Sonic Runway by Rob Jensen and Warren Trezevant as the first artwork selected for the Playa to Paseo initiative. Sonic Runway is a light-art installation that visualizes the speed of sound. The artwork is 432 feet long and stretch across a city block between 4th and 5th streets in front of San José City Hall, 200 E. Santa Clara Street, San Jose, CA 95113. Sonic Runway converts audio signals into a pattern of lights that shoot down a corridor of arches at the speed of sound, (1235kph /767mph). Live audio input is analyzed and converted into intricate patterns that shoot down the corridor with sound and lights in sync. The artwork can be be viewed nightly from 5:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. through March 2018.

  4. The San Jose 408K

    March 4, 8:00 AM - 1:00 PM @ Santa Row

    With the 408k Race we set out to create an event by the local community, for the local community and by the local community. Admittedly, there are a lot of races to choose from these days. From musical half marathons to color run craziness, you can find a generic series every weekend. And those are GREAT events. In fact, we have learned a ton from each of those events. But we believe there is power in knowing your community and producing something special for the people in it. We know the local charities, we try to attach authentic local sponsors, and we treat our runners like our neighbors. Frankly, because our runners ARE our neighbors.
