This project is a permanent public art commission funded through the City of Seattle’s Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs for Seattle City Light, their electric utility. The piece is located in the Seattle Municipal Tower in downtown Seattle. For Currents, I created a complex circuit organized around a series of smaller narratives, as a metaphor for living, working and imagining everyday life. The overall effect is meant to reward the viewer in such a way as to reveal various practical and poetic levels of meaning over time while providing a stimulating sense of life and the mechanics of energy in perpetual motion.

It is the combination and complexity of place, how things work, how we experience them and how humans interact that inform this portrait of life with electricity as a vital link.
