Screen printed porcelain tile mural for the City of Redmond‘s new Senior and Community Center. 

The tile design combines elements of science and nature, how they interact with the community, and the forces that have made Redmond what it is today.

8703 160th Ave NE, Redmond, WA  

Senior and Community Center for the City of Redmond, Washington. Three panels: 7’ x 3’, 7’ x 5’, 7’ x 3’.  Screen printed porcelain tile mural. 2024.

The mural incorporates binary code seeming to fall from the sky and circuit board paths rising up from the ground like cattails, a visual metaphor for the technology that surrounds us on a daily basis. The binary code spells out “Hello World” and “Where Nature meets Technology” from left to right. The piece speaks playfully to where nature meets technology.

These technological elements are embedded in a natural landscape, including a large tree, native birds and the Sammamish River. The left and right panels contain blueprints and patent drawings.  The right-side panel is a composite of a patent drawing illustrating the engineering for ‘under lighting’ from a Redmond based technology company.

The imagery on the left panel represents a bridge trestle and a blueprint outline of the (Jerry Baker Memorial Velodrome), older technology in the area. The globe serves as an acknowledgement of Redmond’s international presence.
