ARTSWA CALL FOR ENTRIES
Class Project 2012
A Space Transformed
Transformations: Changing Spaces is a (fictional) competition hosted by the Washington State Arts Commission in which local artists are encouraged to submit concepts for a site-specific installation with the purpose of improving a neglected public space. For 2012, the King County Pedestrian Overpasses were selected as the sites for proposed installations.
The bleak grey-tones of the determined sites provided an empty canvas of opportunity for participants, yet provided little excitement to inform the design and generate interest. The challenge was to effectively represent the feel of the site, while hinting at the vast range of opportunity for transformation.
