About Streamlined Fadeout:
Streamlined Fadeout is a sculptural animation project that unfolded over six months on the SEAT portion of Sound Transit's Capitol Hill Wall Project in Seattle's Cal Anderson Park. A grid of hubcap pairs (”pixels”), dark on one side, were flipped and photographed by SEAT animators in a series of patterns that suggested cars moving slowly in traffic; additional runs of the pattern were photographed as the light rail station grew closer to completion and the color weathered off.

Installation and animation began October 12, 2013; dark pixels were coated in aquarium-grade activated charcoal and corn syrup.
