TABULA is seismic reactive architectural light by San Francisco based sculptural artist Charles Gadeken and
seismic artist D.V. Rogers. Real-time
USGS global seismic data is displayed in various modes on a scrolling LED world map which moves anti-clockwise across
385 Sherman Avenue, Palo Alto, California.
Also known as AFTERSHOCK, this architectural seismic light work represents the dynamic and constant movement of tectonic plates and the resulting effect large
earthquakes can have on communities living above active seismic zones. Software by Life Orange and
Code on Canvas. LED hardware by 3Waylabs. A permanent installation commissioned by
Brick Architecture and Palo Alto Arts Commission.
