Artopia in Georgetown Strikes Again, Part 2


Dan Corson‘s Spatial Matrix. Spatial matrixes are nothing new — I saw one at another gallery just a couple days ago — but this one is a little unique. It was an installation at the Georgetown brewery’s former “Engine Room”; clear indigo panels were put up over the windows, and steel cables ran from the ceiling to the floor, with neon stripes painted on them. The result looks is cables that almost look as though they are trembling.


Another view.


Head on over to Dan’s website to see more works. Although I’ve never known Dan’s name, I have seen his works throughout the city of Seattle, and his installations are actually quite commonplace throughout the city. Go take a look; you might be surprised, too.
