“Colour is uncontainable. It effortlessly reveals the limits of language and evades our best attempts to impose a rational order on it… To work with colour is to become acutely aware of the insufficiency of language and theory – which is both disturbing and pleasurable.” – David Batchelor, Scottish artist and writer currently based in London.

The picture was recently taken up close in a lobby of a new building in downtown Seattle, while waiting for a friend to arrive.
The electric lights were out for about an hour in the Emerald City today..
Almost in time for a lunch break for many, as the power failure was sudden around 11:30 AM until 12:30 PM. The Seattle Fire Department reported 15 elevator rescues and 10 fire alarms responds. The cause is yet unclear, as far as I know.
What that has to do with the picture above is little. The cat cut is just a cool Japanese style art thing above on Yesler Street that remains now whether the lights are on or not. But it looks cooler on a gloomy late afternoon with less light, I think.
Under the great Pike Market of Seattle, inner Post Alley…
You may notice ever-changing art; boggling and fantastic, ugly and beautiful.
Behind and further down, there is an entire wall of chewed bubblegum built over the past decades (pics for another day on that). Tourists tend to focus their attention towards the gum, while I feel this is more deserving of such appreciation.
