The Teardown

The history of Seattle is a history of a changing region. From the gold rush pioneer days to the teardown of the Alaskan Way Viaduct. For the lives of those living in the orbit of structural change, it can be radical.

An Artist Remembers the Seattle Viaduct

Baso Fibonacci has lived and made art next to the Alaskan Way Viaduct for 10 years. The 90,000 cars that used the elevated highway each day served as soundtrack and inspiration. But the city has closed the viaduct and in a few months it will be completely torn down. What will happen to Baso and his art is an open question. But before the columns come down, the artist put on one last art show.
