New to the Seattle public-art family

(Ellen Sollod’s “Origami Tesselation”)

If you’ve been stuck waiting to turn left on to Westlake from Mercer (don’t start ArtsPage on this subject) you may have noticed something new has sprouted in the median at Mercer and Boren. The 28-foot cylinder of stainless steel, called “Origami Tesselation,” is by Seattle artist Ellen Sollod. In the evening, the structure, which was inspired by the scientific research being done in South Lake Union, is illuminated by blue and white lights. More pieces are coming from Sollod in the Mercer Corridor — benches, manhole covers and tiles, according to the Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs. The work was commissioned with Seattle Department of Transportation 1 Percent for Art funds.
