— Chuck Barney. Visual arts. Remembering Bucky. Iconoclast, inventor, architect and author R. Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) was decades ahead of the rest of us. He coined the term “spaceship Earth” and popularized the concept of synergy when few people could conceive of “thinking globally.” He created the geodesic dome, proposed pollution reduction and argued that existing resources could supply enough food and shelter for everyone on the planet. Since his ideas are now largely forgotten, I’m really excited about “The Utopian Impulse: Buckminster Fuller and the Bay Area,” at SFMOMA March 31-July 29. It will include some 65 works — models, drawings, photographs, videos and more — on his achievements. It will also feature work from Bay Area designers inspired by Fuller, including Ant Farm architecture collective; North Face and Shelter Systems designer Bob Gillis; Plastiki sailboard builder David de Rothschild; the Whole Earth Catalog’s Stewart Brand; architect/urbanist Nicholas de Monchaux; and documentary filmmaker Sam Green.

“The music helped keep her centered to keep alive,” Barmby said. “Music and dance and arts were things that just helped her to get through the rough points of her life.”. That’s likely what drew Mendiola to the Ghost Ship on Friday night, Barmby said. Best friend Zora Burden met Mendiola on the day she moved to San Francisco about 20 years ago, when Mendiola was 18. The two bonded over their love of goth culture and their mutual interests in music, art and literature, eventually moving in together and becoming like sisters, according to Burden.
