bart & i headed over to ballard yesterday to check out the new installations at okok & 20twenty (& hit up joann fabrics). i hadn't read what was at okok before heading over, but was pleasently surprised by ethan rose's site specific audio piece. he was getting ready to film, but they let us take a peak in before closing for the day. a hundred plus electric powered music boxes fill the space with sweet, perfectly composed sounds - i couldn't help but stand in the middle of the room & close my eyes. it's worth a visit for sure.
i've mentioned christopher hansen a couple times in the past month or so; imagine my happiness to visit his photo show at 20twenty. his series of photos titled "dear friends" is such a beautiful look into the people closest to him. stop in, pick up a sweet vintage sweater or boots & enjoy his work.
