Urban Hardscapes - Windows To The Underground 1
Mixed Media - Photography, Fused Glass, Mixed Media
This is the first in a four part series relating to the skylights that are embedded into the sidewalks of Pioneer Square in Seattle, WA. Much of the glass has been destroyed over the many decades since they were installed. In some places they've been filled in with concrete, in others, they are a mix of concrete and the original glass. These "Skylights" were built into the sidewalks to illuminate the subterranean world of "Underground Seattle after the city was rebuilt above the old one. I took the photos during a misty rain one morning and built the collages up from there using simple elements and fused glass squares embedded with wire. This series is framed with black painted wood and protected with plexiglass.
