Seattle artist Yuri Kinoshita is completing her term as an artist-in-residence at Inscape. I visited yesterday to see her new tree installation made with steel, bamboo fiber, silk cocoons, and LED lights. Sitting on zafu pillows under the tree, several suspended strings can be gently tugged to release a range and yellow leaves from above which flutter silently down to join the array on the floor. Very peaceful and otherworldly.
I hope to be working with Yuri on a new restaurant project this fall and this visit was an inspiration. Today is the last day to view this piece as she has to now move it back to her studio. See it if you can.
Inscape is the old Seattle Immigration and Naturalization Service building just south of Uwajimaya Village at 815 Seattle Blvd South, Seattle WA 98134
