Picture of the Day

June 11, 2016

The boiler room in our 28-unit building is hot and loud--the furnace roars
and a lattice of superheated metal pipes bakes it like a sauna. The infernal
Georgetown Steam Plant must have been a hundred times worse. Now it
sits quiet and cool beside Boeing Field, except when local arts groups use
it as set for their plays, music, dance, or installations. For the dead husk
of a coal-fired power plant it's surprisingly lively and inviting. Today,
echoes of the past whispered through the air as Drone Restoration, a
composition by Evans and Teske gently vibrated the cavernous space.
