12th Ave Arts Center is a very forward thinking building in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood. The center features affordable housing, workspaces for non-profits, theaters, and artists studios.

To ring in the grand opening Sensebellum was asked to provide a creative display of projection mapping for the August Capitol Hill Art Walk 


After taking a view of the site some ideas coalesced: foot traffic, the vintage marquee, mixed living spaces, playful in an age of modernity, etc. The projections should reflect the city and its many inhabitants.

A diversity of styles all living on one surface. No one artist could accurately capture this, nor should one voice define the moment. For this we created an original approach. A stable foundation for letting many artists collaborate on the building to be projection mapped upon.
