SFMOMA Artists Gallery at Fort Mason

I tagged along with a friend who was on a mission to check out a gallery opening at the SFMOMA Artists Gallery at Fort Mason. The works I liked the most were Ari Salomon's photographic panoramas of scenes of urban Japan. Mr. Salomon creates them by digitally stitching together photos taken on a rotating tripod. The coolest ones have the panorama extending vertically instead of horizontally, so the view starts at your feet, goes up overhead, then back down on the view that would be behind you.
