Aurora Avenue North Improvements Project "Bright Dawn"
2017-2018, Seattle, WA
Vicki Scuri Siteworks with Alexandr Polzin and SDOT
Sponsored by the City of Seattle Office of Arts & Culture
Inspired by the sunrise, this project adds color and pattern to an aging pedestrian bridge, transforming it into a community landmark gateway. Hundreds of translucent colorful fins transition through the hues of the sunrise across the span of the bridge. The four foot tall and six and half inch wide fins sit on the outside of and attach to the railings. The fins elevate the bridge into a unique art experience for both the cars traveling under and the pedestrians above. The colors on the translucent fins will shift and blend as the viewer moves through the site, creating a dynamic experience. The bridge’s columns and stair hold colorful painted graphic, connecting the artwork directly to the site.
