Waterfront Seattle
Buster Simpson will collaborate with the designers for Waterfront Seattle to develop a permanently-sited public artwork that will contribute to habitat restoration and the development of public open space along the seawall. Working with the idea of the "Anthropocene Beach," Simpson will integrate natural and manmade materials to reveal human alteration and reconstruction of the waterfront.

"The environmental restoration of the encroachment at urban water's edge calls for an honest, transparent aesthetic, one that has dynamic agility in the face of the influences of climate change as we enter the human-influenced Anthropocene Epoch." —Buster Simpson
