Illumination Station

Illumination Station

Name: Illumination Station

Location: Occidental Square

Duration: Dec. 3, 2018 to Jan. 31, 2019

Description from the Artist:

In the dark, wet winter months of Seattle, Electric Coffin’s Illumination Station is a beacon of brightness. The installation acts as a portal that temporarily transports viewers into a glowing moment of clarity among foggy times. From the exterior, park visitors are greeted by colorful floral patterns: a reminder that spring will come again. When walking through, a lit mosaic ceiling showers visitors with colorful light to recharge the spirit throughout weeks of cloudy skies.
