Floored: Veit Stratmann’s Vibrant, Anxious Seattle Floor Just Wants to Move You
We are pleased to share Jen Graves’ review of Suyama Space’s ‘The Seattle Floor’ in The Stranger this week entitled, “Floored: Veit Stratmann’s Vibrant, Anxious Seattle Floor Just Wants to Move You”
“The floor is making you do things. It’s a work of art, but let’s deal with it first as a floor. The floor is divided into parallel segments. They stretch from the door area of Suyama Space to the entrance of the Belltown architecture firm Suyama Peterson Deguchi at the back of the building. Each segment of floor is a strip of colored vinyl, in every color of the rainbow plus gray. To go forward, you choose a color. Walk forward in the narrow path of your choice, and soon you arrive at the other side. What now? Turn around and come back? Yes, but if you stay on this color, you will merely go back and forth, back and forth. So it’s time to cross between rows, from color to color, to push through the corn stalks, as it were.” – Jen Graves, The Stranger
