Artist Statement

The project is currently developing in response to the unique conditions of the wall along Alaskan Way, which faces the street but also contains a space behind it. This "back of the house" will be animated with elements whose shadows will cast on the street's screen wall in a changing weather of light, motion and atmosphere.

"Seattle is making the quality of its public spaces a central project in the imagination of the city. And I'm really thrilled to be able to participate and be part of that process."
