Well, that was a success. Thanks to all of you, we raised $5,351, all of which will be donated to Sahayeta, adding to their impressive $143,532 already raised. We’ve just heard from Sahayeta that the money we raised will be used to focus on rebuilding schools and health clinics in remote areas that have been isolated and shut down because of poor road conditions. Amongst the many nonprofits working to benefit Nepal, we chose Sahayeta because they’re Bay Area-based and are owned and operated by immigrants and refugees from the Himalayan region, with a team on the ground in Nepal working to rebuild and reconstruct to prepare for the upcoming monsoon season.



To recap: On June 5, Public Works and the San Francisco Burning Man community came together to host a dance party fundraiser for Nepal in light of the deadly earthquake that struck the region last April. Many thanks … Read more ›

If you’re a fan of Public Works, you know that we’re fans of Burning Man. Since we launched a little over four years ago, we’ve worked closely with the Burning Man community, hosting events of all kinds. We’re happy to share details of two upcoming events that are hosted by the Burning Man community, but will appeal to everyone: killer music (of course), a wonderful fundraiser with amazing raffle prizes, and a cerebral Black Rock art-centric panel discussion hosted by SFMOMA!

Friday, June 5 — Burners for Nepal

This Friday, we’re hosting a very special dance-party-plus-more, in partnership with several different Burning Man camps and Sahayeta (http://www.sahayeta.org/beta/), a San Francisco-based nonprofit launched by individuals, immigrants and refugees from the Himalayan region to provide a support system for the Himalayan community.

 

First things first, we have a killer DJ lineup featuring:

Kevin Anderson (Desert Hearts)
Shiny Objects (Disco Knights / Up All Night SF)
Ben Seagren … Read more ›
Ahead of tonight’s live performance at Public Works, our friend Max Cooper had some words …..

 





1) Tell us about the music behind the Emergence live set. Did you compose new work specifically for Emergence, or does it comprise work from your back catalog–or a bit of both? 
A bit of both. I had some old music videos whose concepts fitted well into the Emergence narrative – how natural laws create the world around us through the process of the development of the universe and its systems, from star formation to the workings of the mind and all sorts in between. Because the concept of the show draws on a wide range of ideas as it moves through the epochs of the universes development, it encompassed some of my old music videos like “Gravity Well”, which was like the view from inside a black hole (that we fall into during the show as … Read more ›

Macay lives in a permanent trip around the world, accompanied by her inseparable scissors, brushes and bike. At looking over her works, we overview her visual diary.
Macay creates microcosms populated by hybrid figures in which nature seems to demand its rights. Her works stimulates the passer-by, pointing everyday spaces that have come to disappear from one’s sight. The ultra-modern environment and the timelessness of her work provokes a clash between space and time.
The artworks of this exhibition are collages of landscapes made with photos from de north and south of Chile, where MACA captured lost unexplored places far away from the urban context.
MACA worked with images of flora and wildlife and made them part of a city life, connecting the nature with the concrete walls, gray clouds and the city smog.

MACA created a new beautiful and engaging life scenario using images from our daily lives cut and glue in a completely … Read more ›
‘Dirtybird’s first lady — born Jessica Phillippe — comes from a diverse musical background, and it shows on songs like “Coefficient” and “Say My Name.” Combining house and techno influences drawn from time spent living in Chicago and Berlin, J. Phlip is one of the beloved S.F. label’s most exciting talents.’

We’re stoked to have J. Phlip right here at Public Works this Saturday, alongside Simian Mobile Disco and Roman Flügel, courtesy of the one-and-only As You Like It. Click HERE for tickets!
