Writing about style, design and all things that catch my eye!

Perfectly imperfect and casually luxe; these are a few of my favorite things.

Building of demolition, Castle of Threads

The Seattle arts community is rallying behind the recent news of the probable building demolition, and subsequently, the certain relocation of more that 100 artists from the beloved 619 Western Building. Numerous structural concerns arose about the building due to the upcoming construction of the Alaska Way viaduct tunnel. The city is currently in the process of answering 87 questions from these artists. Click here to see their progress so far.

This post isn't all about reality though. It's about a dream.

Photographer Ross James recently presented a colorful, spring-inspired photo narrative titled "i awoke and i was in a CASTLE OF THREADS". The interactive installation, photo projection, and print displays featured a collaboration with local fashion designer Chrissy Wai-Ching. The 619 Western building hosted this event in what was possibly one of the final art walks there. ****Luckily, the current report is that it should remain open into the 2011 year**** stay tuned!

Thanks to Ross for letting me use his gorgeous photos. Here are the ones from last week's art walk; followed by the large photo shoot images. The models are Ming Huang and Lanna Barrones (full credits for making this all happen are at the end of the video above). Are your dreams this colorful; and could someone capture them as beautifully for you in a camera lens? Would you even let them? I've been thinking bright, so I think that maybe it happened right here. I barely remembered anything until now...
