SoCal, What's Good?

The Triforium

What it is:
Designed by artist Joseph Young, the Triforium was initially supposedto be a "polyphonoptic" sculpture. Young wanted to use motion sensors and a computer system to translate the motions of passers by into psychedelic patterns of light, sound, and music.
Why it's cool:
The computer system never worked quite right, but it’s still a unique work of overlooked public art in downtown LA.
You should know:
Parking downtown can be tough. But taking the Red or Purple Line to Grand Park Station will put you within walking distance (about four blocks). Get directions.
