Prior to salvage and redevelopment, a group of five neighboring homes in Seattle’s North Capitol Hill neighborhood were used by selected artists to create temporary, site-specific installations. Participants were free to use both the interior and exterior spaces of the homes, and had the unusual opportunity to cut into walls, ceilings, and floors. The final works included multi-media projections, soft sculpture, woodworking, painting, and mixed media. Mad Homes was open to the public, and invited viewers to walk through the art, experiencing each room as a different installation. MadArt’s goal for this project was to create an unexpected, joyful, and distinctive art experience for visitors, while providing local artists a valuable and rare opportunity to create large-scale artwork.
