I went to see some performance art by John Grade. This project, called Bloom: The Elephant Bed, is eco-art aimed to draw attention to the grandeur of the environment. 10 corn based sculptures are marched through downtown and into the bay, where they dissolve and disappear. Unfortunately, some people in city hall were concerned that people might *think* the project was environmentally harmful, so the march was forbidden from entering the bay. Read an article about that mess here. So instead of majestically dissolving into the bay, the sculptures were brought to Maritime Park and hosed down by the fire department. Apparently environmentalists don't care about grass...

I also meet some robots.
