The City of Bellingham proposed a call to artists to save a historic portion of the old paper plant, known as the Acid Ball, as an art object for their waterfront revitalization project.
Rather than have an object that is looked at and not interacted with, our proposal was to inhabit the space. Using materials and form the space both tells the story of what the historic object was used for and offers an exciting place for casual or curated events.
Located along one of the paths that enter the park, curated apertures offer a focused view of the beautiful natural environment in which Bellingham resides.
