HER Time Travel

HOLLOW EARTH RADIO is proud to present the world’s first ever Time Travel Museum and a one-of-a-kind Time Travel Party in Seattle, WA. The museum will open on October 21st, 2015, and remain open until the party on November 7th, 2015.
The Time Travel Museum will feature artifacts and evidence of time travel, as well as local artists’ interpretation of the theme. The museum will be hosted at Hollow Earth Radio’s headquarters in the Central District. The opening ceremony for the museum, on October 21st, will feature live performances by Swooning (featuring Briana Marela) and WLISPS, as well as time travel lectures.
The date of the opening ceremony was chosen to coincide with the landing date of Marty Mcfly in Back to the Future. Also come see the new Making of: Back to the Future special free happy-hour screening at Central Cinema Friday Oct 23 at 5:00.
The Time Travel Party was inspired by theoretical physicist, Stephen Hawking’s failed attempt to entice time travelers to a similar event. “I have experimental evidence that time travel is not possible,” he said. “I gave a party for time-travelers, but I didn’t send out the invitations until after the party. I sat there a long time, but no one came.” Hollow Earth Radio has decided to make it’s own attempt at throwing a party for Time Travelers, however in this case they aren’t just waiting until after the event to send out invites.
The Time Travel Party, on November 7th, will feature performances by The Fabulous Downey Brothers among other artists, the creation of a time capsule, and more surprises. Hollow Earth Radio hopes to attract travelers from all eras and timelines to attend this event.
Both events are part of an upcoming fundraising campaign to help Hollow Earth Radio purchase an antenna and other necessary equipment to begin broadcasting as KHUH. Hollow Earth Radio is a Seattle-based freeform online radio station that recently received a low-power fm license.

UNFOLDING art exhibit coming Nov-Dec

Composite of elements from two photographs by Susan Gans and section of a drawing by David Traylor at the Western point of Union Street, Seattle looking at the Viaduct to be removed in the near future which fronts Elliott Bay.

The Unfolding Project is the fourth collaboration about the idea of “place” undertaken by Susan Gans and David Traylor. Prior exhibitions were conceptual and broader in context. Gans and Traylor chose Unfolding to be specific and to look at a street that reflects social, economic and cultural changes not unlike what has been seen in many cities across the country.

Gans and Traylor spent more than a year walking Union Street and talking to members of the business community, artists and residents before deciding how to shape their show. The title of the exhibition is symbolic of how the street appears on a map and how it is viewed with the work presented. The full exhibition was shown at Gallery 110 in Pioneer Square this September.

Beginning November 10th and running thru January 3rd, the Central Cinema will show highlights including the book that focuses on important intersections throughout the Union Street Corridor. A series of independent photographs augment the art book of photographs and drawings and concentrate on East Union Street.

Susan Gans is a photographer deeply rooted in city life and the back-stories not always noticed by the accidental onlooker. David Traylor is an artist and Landscape Architect who looks for a different approach to describing how landscapes and the objects within them are seen.

Susan Gans is represented by Gallery 110 in Seattle’s Pioneer Square.

David Traylor is represented by Ryan James Fine Arts in Kirkland, WA and is a member of Shift Gallery in Seattle.
