How to Decorate your Electric Meter

Turning ‘found objects’ into questionable art via the light meter on our house. I have been working on this project for years, as you can tell by the care I took in placing the objects as well as the non-thematic nature of the piece.

Enjoy!

Touches of Art Deco

23-DSC_5365

Years ago, this was the Public Health Hospital on Beacon Hill, in Seattle. It has had many tenets since those days, when people without health insurance could go for medical care. For a few years it served as Amazon’s Headquarters. Now it is occupied by PacMed called Pacific Tower and is shared with Seattle Central Community College as a training facility.

If you look closely you can see touches of Art Deco in the building design. Considering what sort of design styles are used today. glass and steel monoliths, I find the look of this building amazing to view.

A Bit of Smokey, Seattle Haze

These were taken during one of the less-smokey days we had this summer. Still, the visibility is affected. The BC forest fires robbed us of many nice, summer days.

Two Properties

 

These two properties are less than a block from each other. Tale of two houses/living spaces. Behind the large tree is an actual house that’s appears to be occupied.

SODO

Link light rail train heading into the SODO station, in a northerly direction. SODO translates to South of the Dome, a domed stadium that was demo’d years  ago to make way for the stadium that is home to the Seahawks and Sounders. Maybe it’s time to rename this light industrial area south of downtown Seattle?

Along the Tracks (Con’t.)

One of the questions that comes to mind, when viewing and shooting street art is: what does this say about our society/culture? Some people view it as vandalism while others view it as a form of contemporary art. Because the palette is in or near a public space does that change the dynamics? Or. like the images I have been presenting, are mostly out of the view of the public, but on a BNSF railway right of way does that change things? To get this space both the artist and I have to trespass across those railroad tracks. The palette in these works is just a retaining wall, so maybe the work enhances the large, drab concrete space?

I guess it begs the age old question: What is art? 

We all have to answer that for ourselves, I guess.
