Wave Rave Cave

Seattle, WA

55'w x 135' l x 16'h ; concrete, pea gravel, specialty lighting; 2002.

A dark cave-like underpass is animated with pea gravel covered giant "coolwhip" waves that undulate and erupt from a sculpted sea of pea gravel. At night, moving "psychedelic" lighting animates the space and recalls the area's history of raves, nightclubs and bohemian artist lofts.
