Field Conditions

This afternoon, during a visit to the SF Museum of Modern Art, I walked across a large white room with a black-and-white tile floor, and many fluorescent lights, which rotated slowly, like ceiling fans, as I passed under them. I reached a doorway, where a group of visitors and a docent were watching the lights move. The docent thanked me ("the nice man in the black suit") for activating the installation, which was called Field Conditions. I was wearing a charcoal-grey jacket, red button-down shirt, a dark blue sleeveless sweater, and black pants, sox, and shoes.
