ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

by Lindsay Peyton
West Seattle artist Troy Pillow is preparing to put the finishing touches on his sculpture “Transpose” at Junction Plaza Park, located just at the corner of 42nd and Alaska.

The kinetic homage to the park – reflecting the intersection of nature and the bustling shopping and dining district – was erected at the end of November. Now Pillow is installing lights to let the stainless steel piece continue to glow at night.

The sculpture has become an anchor to the plaza. The small park features a few benches and a small lawn, perfect for a moment’s relaxation.

Now when the wind blows, the bright blue leaves on the metal tree whirl like a pinwheel – adding a bit of eye-catching whimsy to the public space.

Pillow said the park was dedicated in 2010 and that funding became available and made it possible for the installation of a sculpture.

He was selected by the West Seattle Junction Association for the project and, together with the organization, sought public input for the design.

He began fabricating the sculpture last September.
