We can electrify our senses or elix our boredom if we seek out individuals who construct artworks that remove our expectations and don’t offer an answer to what they have presented. Veit Stratmann’s recent installation, The Seattle Floor, in the Suyama Space in Belltown (2324 2nd Ave, Seattle) is a continuation of a project executed in other countries. In simple terms, it is strips of brightly hued vinyl panels covering the floor. In complex terms, it disorients the viewer and makes them consider the purpose. It asks you to walk with consideration and to look at the bare space with yourself at the center. A thoughtful contemplation for the imagination.
