Skeleton Street: the Metro Bus Shelter Mural
Once upon a time I went to archaeology school at the University of Washington, where I studied evolutionary theory, paleontology, and biological remains. Archaeologists and paleontologists do their best to identify the bones of various prehistoric people and fossil creatures. More recently, I wondered: what would the skeletons of mythological entities look like? And started creating fantastic digital puppets by combining parts of illustrations found in science books published in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, using digital collage techniques.
The Skeleton Street Mural is on a Metro Bus Shelter on Denny Way, just east of Fairview Avenue, in Downtown Seattle. The backdrop is a collage of my photographs of buildings in Seattle.
