The Creators Project was born through a partnership between Intel and Vice magazine, and showcases art, technology, music, film, and design. The SF event was spread throughout several buildings at Fort Mason and took place over the course of the weekend. Tickets for Saturday, including the music line-up, were distributed via lottery. Sunday was open to the public, minus the musical acts.
Attending the event was similar to going to Burning Man: stand-out art and installations minus the dust. If you’ve spent time in the desert, you realize that it’s unbearably hot in the day, but also unbearably cold at night. I think we experienced San Francisco at its coldest because we were freezing our asses off at Fort Mason, especially since it’s right by the water. I turned into a popsicle, I was sooo cold. I was hungry too, but could barely wait in line at one of the food trucks. F-R-E-E-Z-I-N-G!
The art installations were mesmerizing. As for music, I only cared to see Zola Jesus. I didn’t even know the headliner the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs. Dean had to play a clip of their music for me before we went. Art + Music + Friends = Suhweet Night
My pictures don’t do the event justice. The one I included is proof that I went. But you must watch this 1 minute video clip overview.
Oh yes, I should also mention that the event was completely free. Thank you Intel and Vice!
