Seattle`s Public Art: Kristin Tollefson, WaterLogs + Leaf/Hull

This edition of Seattle`s Public Art looks at WaterLogs + Leaf/Hull by Kristin Tollefson. The work blurs the boundaries between land and water, past and present, nature and our imprint on it. The curving tilted logs reclaimed from the bottom of Lake Union suggest the half hull of a boat, the pilings of an old pier, or perhaps outstretched fingers. The concave steel ellipse alludes both to the trees and to the maritime influences at the site. The work aims to be simultaneously scientific and poetic, minimal and baroque. Produced for the Seattle Channel by John Forsen with support from the Mayor`s Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs.
