Seattle Center is collaborating with the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture to bring Temporary Art Installations to campus year-round. Naoko Morisawa was one of four artists selected as part of Seattle Center’s Poetry Garden Art Series.
Morisawa’s Morse Code Project will be featured through August 1. Morisawa installed a Morse code pattern made of colorful garden hose tubing in the Poetry Garden. Morisawa transforms a functional garden material into an art object by amplifying the form and color of the garden hose.

Morisawa also received a purchase award for the piece “Wave VI – Dive” (oil-stained wood mosaic, acrylic, oil, sumi, and paper on wooden board) from the Kent Arts Commission. Every summer, the Kent Arts Commission displays photographs, paintings, works on paper, prints and collages in the Summer Art Exhibit. Morisawa was one of 63 artists who submitted digital images of more than 500 pieces to be considered, and the jurors selected 57 artworks from 27 artists.
