Description of the artwork
Inside the Interfaith Prayer and Meditation Room is a warmly lit, quiet space full of wood accents and areas to focus on one’s spirituality. Seattle-based artist Weston Lambert adds to the space with a mural of emerald-colored glass titled Currents. Modeled after the shape of brainwaves that occur during meditation and prayer, the wave-like forms and cool tones also reference the Pacific Northwest’s abundance of water. Like the contemplative state one feels when watching light move across the waves of Puget Sound, this kinetic mural of light enables a moment of pause and repose amidst the hectic din of travel.
