Seattle Art Museum presents two installations: Terratopia: The Chinese Landscape in Painting and Film at the Asian Art Museum (through Feb. 26, 2017) and Tamiko Thiel: Gardens of the Anthropocene at the Olympic Sculpture Park (through Sept. 30). Both show us the vision of landscape and how humans interact with the natural wood.
Terratopia arranges classical Chinese painting and contemporary film together to demonstrate landscape as a metaphor for human emotion.
Tamiko Thiel, a Japanese American media artist, grew up in Seattle. Thiel imagines the near future landscape of the Anthropocene, which reflects earth’s changing conditions. Using a free smartphone app, you can access this artwork and experience an immersive and interactive environment.
