Cancelled – Electric Flora
A Light Art Exhibit

Electric Flora is a light art exhibit created from sculpture, form, and light that re-creates the wonder of Pacific Northwest flora in a reimagined way.

Sorry, this exhibit is no longer running. Thank you for your patience.

The annual artist collaboration for a winter light installation at Pier 62 is back!

The 2021 exhibit is curated by Lusio. It sparks inspiration from the bounty of summer to light our way through the rainy Seattle winter. Video Content features artists Phill Pasqual, Retina Ghost, Chris Rojas, and Mokedo. The curators at Lusio aim to create a minimal yet lush design that appeals both from a distance and looks well close up against the Seattle skyline backdrop and the Salish Sea. Friends of Waterfront Seattle encourages you to visit Pier 62 twice to see this inspiring exhibit in both its states –both in the day and when illuminated at night.

Note: light art images shown on this page are samples only. Thank you for your patience.

 

UPDATE: this exhibit is cancelled. Check out our other upcoming events and programs here.

Mollie Bryan

I am a multi-faceted artist with experience working in a variety of mediums such as painting, photography, sculpture, light, video, textile, paper, and recycled materials such as cassettes. My scope of work revolves around my love of natural patterns, textures, lush PNW nature, music, and the acts of exploration and play.

I tend to like to invite playfulness into my work and I always work with music in my ears as I find the patterns of the elements I am working with like to coincide with patterns in the music I am listening to. I play with the natural patterns of the elements of life and work to create patterns that mimic the similarities of how our life is designed: patterns in patterns in patterns. The ultimate goal in my work is to embody and transfer the sense of happiness I create and carry within me when working with the patterns of light, color, and nature onto the viewer or person experiencing my work.

These days I bounce between painting, video mapping, and sculptural light exhibits; my mind sure loves to multitask and it’s soothing for me to create multiple pieces at once. Lately I’ve been focusing more on how our patterns connect us, how we feel when we do not have those connections, and how the patterns our personal connections play a much more important role in our lives than many of us realize. COVID-19 has required us to isolate ourselves from the world and I feel that the world is being forced to recognize how we’re all connected and how vital these patterns of connections are to our well-being.

Phill Pasqual

Phill Pasqual is a generative artist and software engineer based in Seattle. His work draws inspiration from the local Seattle waterfront and lush surrounding region to reimagine natural systems as algorithmically driven interactive and immersive experiences.

Retina Ghost Work Sample

RetinaGhost

RetinaGhost is an artist, creative coder and world-bridger. Taking inspirations from many domains, they combine the liminal and timeless. They pull their reference from their lived experience, whether it be growing up near the ocean taking cues from the salt spray and the critters that roam the bay, or from their adventures into the woods getting glimpses of the lush and rich biomes that cover the earth. With a keen eye for dramatic and enrapturing compositions, Retinaghost’s pieces can’t help but pull you in.

Chris Rojas

Chris Rojas is a Mexican-American experiential designer and installation artist who creates generative real-time visuals that respond to their environments. He has done visuals for Steve Aoki, Tiesto, Black Eyed Peas, Phantogram, Paul Oakenfold and other musicians as well as installation art for Nike, AIGA, Microsoft, Intel and the Seattle Waterfront. Many of his visuals utilize computer vision and custom electronics to track movements that drive projection mapping, but his passion lies in augmented reality experiences, massive LED walls and audio responsive visuals.

Hosted by Friends of Waterfront Seattle

Friends of Waterfront Seattle (“Friends”) is the nonprofit partner to the City of Seattle responsible for helping to fund, build, steward, and program the park — today and into the future. In deep collaboration with individuals, communities, and institutional partners, Friends’ mission is creating, caring for, and activating a renewed place on Seattle’s central shoreline to connect — to the water, to the mountains, to our city, and to one another. In addition to raising $110M by 2024 to fund park construction, Friends will provide funding and manage the programming and operations of the future Waterfront Park through a joint-delivery partnership with Seattle Parks & Recreation. Park construction has begun following the Viaduct’s removal and the first piece of the park — Pier 62 — is now open.
