the wave organ

I was a little disappointed when I finally made my way to the Wave Organ while in San Francisco this year. The organ has been abandoned--without any regular upkeep, many of the underwater tubes have become clogged, preventing almost all sound.

But I still enjoyed the visual aspect of this sonic art installation. When something turns out not to be what was expected, then appreciate it for what it is.
