Entwined: Elder Mother

Entwined's forest of illuminated color has lit up Peacock Meadow in Golden Gate Park every winter since 2020, immersing park visitors in a realm of art, technology, and nature. In 2023, the installation is returning as Entwined: Elder Mother, a new iteration of the art installation that features a monumental shade-bearing tree that moves in the wind.

The Entwined installation creates a whimsical wonderland where visitors can explore paths and sit under a grove of three entwined sculptural trees while practicing social distancing. The trees range from 12 to 20 feet tall with illuminated canopies as large as 30 feet, filling the meadow with changing light. Sculptures comprised of 2,000 LED lights cluster into small flowering bushes at varying heights, further filling the green space with peaks and valleys of radiating light. The variety of lighting effects are inspired by nature and build a sense of awe: Raindrops on the pavement, lighting and thunderstorms, wind blowing tall grass and flowers, and ripples on a pond.

"As the days get darker, this dazzling installation will light the way for park lovers to experience Golden Gate Park in a new and creative way as we close out its 150th Anniversary," said San Francisco Recreation and Park General Manager Phil Ginsburg. "A twilight stroll through the park's east will be truly magical this winter. People can visit the City's official holiday tree in front of McLaren Lodge before exploring Entwined, marveling at the Conservatory's annual light show, and enjoying the 150-foot Observation Wheel and illuminated bandshell in the Music Concourse."

Entwined is a concept designed for Golden Gate Park, although parts have been installed previously including at Electric Daisy Carnival Vegas and Canada's Toronto Light Festival. The public art project is ADA accessible.
