‘Seeking Higher Ground’ alludes to the spectre of rising sea levels, as well as the ethical and psychological ramifications of the built environment as laid out by the visionary architect, Lebbeus Woods. Woods, who died in 2012 in Manhattan during Hurricane Sandy, is known for his drawings of impossible-to-build structures.
Brooklyn based artist Patte Loper continues where After Lebbeus leaves off. Sited in a gallery space located within an architecture firm provides a context for the visual language of architectural modeling as a jumping off point. The entire structure will be a thought map of the terrain of Seattle, intermingling historical and present states of being, considering the temporality of the built environment.
The artist’s reception was held on Friday, May 20, from 5 to 7 pm, and Loper offered a presentation of her work on Saturday, May 21, 2016, at noon
