“Brush the Sky,” is “a calligraphic family narrative, written onto the Seattle skies.” The exhibit at Wing Luke Museum in Seattle closes on April 17, but will be featured at the Cherry Blossom Festival at Seattle Center, April 22 through 24. The project includes augmented reality by artist Tamiko Thiel, visible on smart phones, of family history sites around the International District and around Seattle. These views include Japanese calligraphy by master calligrapher Midori Kono Thiel, Tamiko’s mother, and will be on permanent exhibit around the city.
We’re looking to remount Tamiko and Midori’s work as part of 9e2. Stay tuned for updates on that.
