A UFO has crash landed at Seattle Center! It will move every month throughout The Next Fifty. Where will it crash next? 'Sightings (Landings)' is a visitation by a vision of our Future(Past).
It explores how we imagine the unknown using what's at hand. Echoing exalted visions of our future, while retaining a touch of the pathos of the present, 'Sightings' is part of a larger project by artist Christian French exploring how we represent our sense of the world we live in. A lonely spaceship that looks remarkably similar to a vintage automobile hubcap makes a special visitation to the Seattle Center in its ongoing quest to find a home.
