Susan Brown’s Skeleton City Puppets

We would be remiss not to spotlight Susan Brown’s delightful Skeleton City Puppets installation on Thomas Street in South Lake Union, which looked glorious in yesterday’s sunshine.

Paper puppet skeletons loom over brick storefronts mischievously playing with various objects, from butterflies to cakes sourced from a Victorian cookbook.  Puppetry, found images, and a darkly comic joy animate this evolving installation that is changing over time as Susan updates and animates the puppets and their toys.
