Pop by Broad Street Green at Seattle Center this summer and view a new art installation by artist Ted Youngs, called Smoke Season.
In 2017, smoke from the Jolly Mountain Fire smothered the Puget Sound. It was the year the region recognized wildfire as its next-door neighbor. Working with burnt trees from this fire, Ted Youngs and Big Power Project has created three art installations on Seattle Center Campus during the summer of 2019.
Pictured here is DISTRESS SIGNAL, made up of 10 burnt trees in a formation that spells SOS.
Employed by the Chinese military on the Great Wall and by Native Americans, smoke is one of the oldest human mechanisms for signaling danger. Wildfires now sends their own distress signals. By explicitly writing an SOS on the land, The Smoke Season draws curiosity and compels the community to help.
