Star Trek has landed at the NEW S Seattle Transfer Station

Your normal smelly waste dump site?  No more.  For those Star Trek nerds, make your trip out just to see the space.  The mist coming from the ceiling (to control dust) dwarfs your sense of space with the light beaming through.

Mathew Anderson "Wrist" from James Grindle on Vimeo.

The Secondary Effects of Art

As I was watering the Green Squared sculptures at Occidental Park, one of the ARTSparks event I organized this summer, James Grindle, the Seattle parks concierge person told me about this music video he did at an art project site he saw last summer in Capitol Hill. 
 
Up until this point James was simply a great help in getting the art installations mounted at the Seattle parks, but when I learned that we he was also an artist who did music videos only with an iPhone, he piqued my interest even more.  He and his music artist friend, Matthew Anderson, decided to create a music video at this house that was about to be torn down, and I couldn’t help but ask with a big smile, “Let me guess, the Mad Homes project?”  and he said, “Yah, that’s right, how did you know?” 
 
This is the kind of instances that touches me more than anything - when an art project you work on has a secondary effect on other artists who are compelled to do work based on the original art.  The house where the music video “Wrist” took place was re-created by Sutton Beres Culler.  It took place in one of two houses strapped together with 2 miles of red industrial, nylon tape.  The scene in the video takes place inside the house where you have to walk over Jason Puccinelli’s “Nude Descending Stairs,”  on the way to the bathroom on the second floor.  James tells me that this music video has been getting a lot of traction in Russia. Check out their music at Knight Riders Recordings.  Bravo to James and Mathew.        by  Bryan Ohno

“Richard Galpin makes these fantastic abstract pieces, derived from his own cityscapes photographs. They aren’t collages; rather, each piece is made entirely by erasing parts of the photograph. He took the logic of artwork by erasure and applied to to a sculptural piece on New York City’s High Line. The piece, entitled Viewing Station, utilizes a specially designed and constructed viewport that creates a frame for the viewer. Link via Broken City Lab.” (Words of Mike Ernst, author of the Magical Urbanism Blog)

What a cool way to re-imagine your space.
