University of Washington, Seattle, WA
Ten galvanized steel armchairs originally installed on a rooftop terrace at the University Hospital. The ten chairs are of three different styles, each having a distinctive pattern of drilled holes in its seat. The armchairs sit within tubular steel pavilion structures designed by Marc Treib and Frances Butler of Berkeley CA, fabricated and installed by Reiquam. In 1996, at the request of the University and with the approval of the other artists, Reiquam reconstructed the entire installation at Meany Hall for the Performing Arts on the University campus. The new site is more accessible to the public, situated in a series of courtyards on three levels and is visible from above. In it's current location, the installation serves as a quasi stage set inviting impromptu performances.
