This is a video of the creation of a mural portrait of Ronald Takaki. I think it’s a really beautiful way to honor a teacher. The speeded up film and the music go really well – it just works. From reading about his life, it seems like putting the mural right on the beach like that is especially sweet – since he was a surfer before he was a Berkeley professor.
