CHS celebrated the third anniversary of Capitol Hill’s re-booted monthly arts walk by pouring paint, etc. on a table with artist Jesse Higman in his Capitol Hill studio. It was difficult to pass up an invitation starting on Teletubby Hill and involving “Sailing the Volition” –
Sailing the Volition with Jesse Higman
Meet at 7:00pm at Teletubby Hill on the north end of Cal Anderson Park
Pour paintings with Jesse Higman in his studio, tour along 11th Ave, and end the evening with Dumb Eyes’ Penetration, the visual/audio psychedelic dance event at Sole Repair. Higman is a recipient of the Mayor’s Arts Award, City Arts Art Walk award, and recognition from the Smithsonian. Higman invites you to “Sail the Volition”:
“Get close, go inside. Darken the room and circle the table, pour to the sky and read the signs. At the first sound, listen to the setting sun, and be ready to tell the moon. We will come to the night with what we know. Feel the spirits. They see you. If you are afraid, offer them everything. They will treat you the same. We will travel with the song to the place they sing. Bring your camera and field recording equipment, and a friend who can operate them if you need to dictate. As Soul Motioneers we employ full risk to provoke the perilous. All hands set riggings. We follow currents, reject others, cast wakes and part space. Yes, the world is flat. Life craves edges and grows there!”
Meanwhile, acrobats tumbled at Seattle Central, the shopping cart DJ rocked Pike/Pine, mustache tours criss-crossed the Hill and patrons of the arts toured stores, studios and galleries to see what else had been created. More images from Thursday night are below.
