ALL RISE is pleased to present 2421 Miles, a site-specific 52,000 square foot earthwork by New York-based artist, Molly Dilworth. Using over 400 cubic yards of dirt and 182 lbs of wildflower and grass seed, Dilworth transforms the interior site of the ALL RISE campus into a living urban meadow. Comprised of 14 individual garden beds each containing a specific colorway, 2421 Miles is based a series of painted pattern studies generated from national flags, corporate logos and traditional patterns found along the sea trade route between Seattle and New York.


In recent years, Dilworth has spent time in ports along the Hudson River, studying the history of commerce between the United States and the Caribbean. At the same time, she traveled between her home in New York and Seattle as a freelance worker for a global technology company. The work is named for that commute - the number of miles between the airports of Seattle and New York - made possible by modern global trade.


As shipping and port technologies evolved over the last century, formerly industrial areas such as South Lake Union have been redeveloped. In a short time this lot on Denny will be a power station serving the demands of the new buildings; All Rise has used this temporary space to mark a transition between last century and ours. The geometric edges of the garden will soften and evolve as it grows, just as our built environment and technologies do: imperceptibly, right in front of our eyes and seemingly all at once. The project was realized with the design assistance of Walker Macy (Portland and Seattle) as well as expertise and custom mixes from ProTime Lawn Seed, and the advice of SunMark Seeds.


ALL RISE is a series of temporary artworks punctuated by performance, music and events located at 1250 Denny Way in downtown Seattle, the future site of the Seattle City Light Denny Substation. ALL RISE seeks to provide a platform for artists who consider the many iterations of land and space: residential, political, commercial, agricultural, spiritual, intellectual, utopian.... It is funded by % for Art Funds, administered by the Office of Arts and Culture, Seattle.


The project will bloom through mid-June, 2015. It is visible in person at 1250 Denny Way, Seattle, Wash. USA, and also online through ALL RISE webcams at www.allriseseattle.org.
