Fifth-floor turret bridge and Haas Atrium

Bill Fontana's Sonic Shadows has transformed SFMOMA's fifth-floor bridge into an immersive installation using ambient sounds from the museum. As a farewell, Fontana invited Bay Area choreographer Deborah Slater to create a new, site-specific movement work for the piece, which will run across the installation's final days. Watch from either the fifth-floor or from the Haas Atrium below, where the three dancers appear to almost float in space.
