What’s Happening Around The County.
We experience so many incredible neighborhoods and fun new things to do around San Diego County each and every day. It’s time to share our findings with friends!
Fault Line Park | East Village, Downtown SD
Did you know the Rose Canyon Fault runs right through Downtown San Diego? It certainly does and it inspired the new 1.3 acre Fault Line Park and “Fault Whisper” public art installation in Downtown’s East Village. But this isn’t just any art installation – it’s an innovative real-time recording of the Earth’s movement.
// SIGHT //
Two 7-ft spheres straddle the Rose Canyon Fault line. The west sphere is equipped with a viewfinder through which visitors can see the east sphere being exactly at the center of view at the time of the spheres’ installation in 2015. Any future fault movement will create a sightline offset, noticeable to viewers.
// SOUND //
An accelerometer is installed below the spheres deep into the Rose Canyon fault rupture to monitor the Earth’s movement. The movement direction and amplitude data stream is processed into musical notes that are softly broadcast from the west sphere.
