Welcome to Seattle Center
Temporary site-specific works installed on campus by artists whose work reflects their surroundings and the theme "Metamorphosis." Four artists provide works that enliven the campus with color, whimsy, and surprise.
In Partnership with Seattle Office of Arts & Culture.
ANGIE HINOJOS YUSUF & CARLOS JIMENEZ, LXCHEL

CAROLINA SILVA, THE WIND TRAP
A vertical space covered by Mylar streams, overhanging and interacting with light and wind, capturing unpredictable reflections, movement and sounds. The Wind Trap is about that which is unseen, appearing in a festive, transformative mode.
