    Built Installation

    What if… we stopped relying on machines and the use of valuable energy resources for drying our clothes?

    An idyllic scene of clothing blowing in the breeze allows visitors to reminisce on a time when laundry was manual, and invites them to explore how borrowing from the past can pave the way to a healthier future. Within our pavilion space, guests will experience a series of temporal partitions formed by rows of clotheslines and clothing that together form a structure that interacts with its environment, transforming with each breeze that flows off of Lake Union.

    In an effort to eliminate material waste, we are committed to donating all materials from our pavilion to local nonprofits following the Festival, to give new life to materials that still have so much use in them. In an age where we find ourselves divided from our neighbors, rows of billowing cotton serve as a reminder that the most minute of tasks can bring our communities together and foster connection, all while helping preserve our planet.


    This team is partnering with a community organization who will take ownership of all or part of installation after the Festival.
