Jason Sprinkle and the forgotten art scene of Seattle

Labor Day, 1993. Jonathan Borovsky’s kinetic sculpture, Hammering Man, which resides outside the Seattle Art Museum (SAM), bore a new attachment: a seven hundred-pound, 19-foot circumference ball and chain, constructed of sheet metal and plate steel. Its cuff was lined with rubber, so as not to damage Hammering Man. There, the guerilla art piece stood for two days, a statement against working-class oppression, before it was removed on Sep. 8 by the Seattle Engineering Department. And as the attachment was detached, the legend was born. 

For the first time in 21 years, residential waste generation exceeded commercial generation

After living in the United States for a year, among many other things, I was struck by the  number of packages delivered daily to my building and passing through the streets of Seattle. It's easier to find stacks of boxes on my neighbors' doors than to see the sunrise. I can't lie, I also get a lot of boxes. More than I should. I have bought more online here than I have ever in my entire existence.
