Oakland Fusion - Public Mosaics

Featured In Jack London Square, Oakland, CA

Item details

Oakland Fusion consists of four consecutive 10′ x 10′ ceramic lenticular murals, comprised of over 45oo hand-glazed tiles mounted to a custom-manufactured, corrugated steel substrate. Each mural functions like a two-cell animation; the image morphs as the viewer changes position. The eight images are based upon the textile patterns of Oakland’s major ethnic demographics. Mounted to the exterior wall of a new parking garage immediately opposite Oakland’s main train station, the murals are intended to viscerally orient new arrivals to Oakland’s cultural geography.

Our projects connect individuals and communities to their current ecological and societal realities, aiming to strengthen the mutually beneficial potential of each.
