A new pilot residency at the park invites you to become part of the artistic process. This year’s resident, movement artist Paige Barnes, presents three programs exploring interconnections between the systems of the body and the surrounding environment.

During Barnes’ residency, she will explore how the park can act as a metaphor of the body. Visitors will have the opportunity to engage in her process through meditative walks and pulse readings. Barnes plans to respond to each individual who participates through improvised movement solos, musical interpretations with Evan Flory-Barnes, written poems by Vanessa DeWolf, and animated drawings by Stefan Gruber. The information gathered during the residency will inform three free public programs, each uniquely inspired by the pulse readings and visitors’ experiences.

Barnes received partial funding from Seattle Office of Arts & Culture.
