Shunpike is thrilled to announce an exciting new partnership at Seattle Center with the Office of Arts & Culture, Seattle Center, and the Office of the Waterfront.
The program debuts October 16 at Seattle Center’s International Fountain Rooms, featuring artist Alexander Keyes and local design team Frankenstein, Inc. Exploring our maritime city through interactive web-based work and installation, both projects offer a meditative view of human activity on and around the sea.

Frankenstein, Inc, Octohedron, Seattle Design Festival
Local design team Frankenstein Inc. presents Attraction — an interactive video installation exploring the human attraction to life at the water’s edge. This projection of human movement through the city will feature a map of Seattle as reported by visitors to their website, which will go live on October 16, 2014. The dynamic map of reported activity will be rear-projected onto a clear acrylic panel routed with forms inspired by the barnacles, bivalves, and crustaceans that also inhabit these margins.
Alexander Keyes, From the Depths (detail)
From the Depths
From the Depths is a site-specific mixed media and video installation suggesting a fantastical maritime journey seen through the workshop of a restless traveler. The son of a merchant marine, Alexander Keyes seeks to “…(look) to the sea as an infinite space of speculation, revealing my desire to confront the unknown and my daydreams on the possibilities that exist within massiveness.”
