Known for their almost painfully über-hip and high-concept interior-design work that elevates hand-drawn, street-art-inspired murals and Pacific Northwest kitsch to a new level in office spaces and restaurants around the city, Future Machine at Bellevue Arts Museum is Seattle creative design studio Electric Coffin’s first foray into the realm of fine art in a museum. Future Machine is an evolving installation that will unfold over seven months of collaborations with artists, industry leaders, technology innovators, nonprofits, and other “creatives.” The installation’s transformational phases will loosely follow the process of an idea materializing into reality to create “new forms, and functions, and technologies” that embody their vision of the future. If that sounds a little ambiguous, it is, but it’s probably worth checking out to see how the installation grows and changes in this time span.
