The reeds and eddies which characterize our shoreline became an important element in Laura Haddad's, of Haddad|/Drugan, Undercurrents, the artist-designed plaza at the marine outfall of diverted stormwater, in Myrtle Edwards Park.
This shadow, cast on the concrete wall of the pump building, is cast by a gate sculpted from stainless steel pipe, introducing the element of light into the juxtaposition of nature and technology central to her overall concept.
The project, funded by the King County Cultural Development Authority, (not a very artistic title) was installed in 2003. When the Olympic Sculpture Park opens later this year it will become part of a contiguous environment of site-specific installations along the shores of Belltown's front yard. But, there's no need to wait until then. It's a fine place to cast your own shadow right now.
