Artist Zarouhie Abdalian reflects on her SFMOMA commission, a sound installation featuring brass bells that have been programmed to ring simultaneously from rooftops radiating out from Oakland's Frank H.

With this experience-based work, Abdalian hopes to shift our awareness of Oakland's city center, a historic site associated with community gathering.
