Today's DioBytes banner: In observance of World AIDS Day and the 30th anniversary of the beginning of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the United States, San Francisco-based artist Daniel Goldstein’s mobile sculpture, “Invisible Man,” will be on view daily (7 a.m. to 6 p.m.) through Sunday, December 4. Constructed of almost 900 hypodermic syringes, each tipped with a red glass bead, it reveals in the negative space of its center the outline of a human figure.
