Artwork In Seattle

Time away from all of the music for a while to appreciate some of Seattle's cutting-edge arts. This is an exhibit that uses a robotic 3-D printer to construct what appear to be sand castles out of salt.

This machine alternately takes apart and then reassembles a glass bottle.

This tapestry is composed of heat-sensitive fabrics, so that it changes colors as heat is applied to it by electric current.

I would like to say that I sat in mediation and watched this machine draw everything you see below, but that wouldn't be true.  I had bands to hear and places to go.  But I did find that the time I spent watching the machine to be quite meditative and calming, and I wished that I had more time (or one of those printers at home).
