This integrated project provides a discreet intervention for a pre-fab pedestrian bridge that establishes an important walking connection for a small town north of Seattle. The bridge running over a salmon restoration stream allows walkers/bikers to pass through a small wooded park between a neighborhood and the town’s civic and business center. The artwork is comprised of leaf-like shapes that hover above the bridge. They draw people’s view to the surrounding environment and focus attention on constantly changing details of the surrounding through the circular “lens”. The sequence of views set up create small dramas or glimpses of a moment in time and season for all that use the bridge, especially those regular users.
