Heather Dwyer e4c, 4Culture's storefront media gallery
Selections from e4c at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
Visible by foot, bike, car and bus, street-based galleries offer a free, accessible opportunity for everyone to experience art each day. Throughout 2014, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will partner with 4Culture to provide innovative media content at their Digital Art Display on 5th Avenue in Seattle.
My video was specifically designed for the large screen, and sound composition was specifically done for the available sound system by composer Victoria Jordanova. Idea was to create a seascape/landscape/soundscape to be enjoyed by passers by. We see the art of landscape as a tangible meeting point between nature and culture. The work, therefore, builds on landscape traditions, capturing a sense of physical and conceptual place.
Composer Victoria Jordanova and I collaborated with Heather Dwyer who manages projects for e4c, 4Culture's storefront media gallery in Seattle on this installation.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
