At Kubota Garden (a City of Seattle Park) there is a hidden platform where many have become engaged or had other wonderful moments. Just a visit to this little place nestled under a large cedar tree and surrounded by bushes is a treat. Here are a few photos of the area around it.
Earlier this year before the pandemic, I was wandering the grounds and came upon the space. The one thing that disturbed me was the carvings made into a lovely wood medallion on the platform fencing. It was a blight to the eye.
Here is what it looked like.
I had an inspiration and decided I would make a covering for this ugliness.
First check out this video so you can see how it looked before I did my art installation.
For months I have worked sporadically on a crochet yarn art piece. I learned how to make three dimensional flowers plus visited the site to dress rehearsal my base piece.
Today was the day of installation. Check out my gonzo art project that improves the atmosphere of this wonderful spot.
I leave you with a little video. If you live in Seattle and want to visit I can give you directions.
