EDMONDS — The event artist selected for TEDxSnoIsleLibraries is Andy Behrle of Zillah. “In the minds of the jury, this particular proposal really captured the theme of the event,” said Ken Harvey, communications director for SnoIsle Libraries and one of the organizers of the local TEDx event. “He describes himself as an artist who uses water and light to investigate the invisible reality around us.”
His work will be displayed in the IdeaLab in the gymnasium at Edmonds Center for the Arts, 410 4th Ave N. It will include weather balloons with images projected on them “to create stunning images,” Harvey said.
The selection of an event artist was done in collaboration with the Snohomish County Arts Commission, which provided a grant for the project. More information about the project is available at the commision website at snohomishcountyarts.org/public_art/chaotic_aquatic.
Organizers of the local TEDx event wanted to include the work of an artist “because we wanted to fully connect attendees with the range of experiences encapsulated in TED,” Harvey said. The initials in TED events stand for Technology, Entertainment and Design.
