The AMP: AIDS Memorial Pathway uses public art and technology to create a place for remembrance and reflection in Seattle about the AIDS epidemic. It was born out of a desire to recognize the AIDS crisis in Seattle and throughout Washington State, and its communities’ responses to this crisis. It includes:
The Pathway along Artworks conceptualized by Horatio Hung‑Yan Law to take visitors through an emotional and historical journey related to the AIDS epidemic in the region from the early 1980s to today, created by artists of different backgrounds and perspectives:
In This Way We Loved One Another by Storme Webber, an exhibition restoring the absent narratives of working class people of color (POC) and women living and dying with AIDS presented in the Cathy Hillenbrand Community room of the Station House Building and dedicated on World AIDS Day, 1 December 2020;
andimgonnamisseveryone by Christopher Paul Jordan, an x-shaped sculpture made of loudspeakers on the Capital Hill Station central plaza sounding a “silent rave” from boom box parties and ballroom to techno and disco music;
We’re Already here by Civilization, three groups of tableaus showing messages of protest signs placed in the central plaza and the adjacent corner of Cal Anderson Park;
The Names Tree by Novaby, a digital recreation of the 100 year old Chinese Scholar Tree that stands in the northwest corner of Cal Anderson Park with lighted leaves ascending to the heavens as the names of the departed are spoken;
Ribbon of Light by Horatio Hung‑Yan Law, three laminated glass sculptures – monolith, reverie, and lambda – along a landscaped pathway in the northern end of Cal Anderson Park.
The AIDS Memorial Pathway was dedicated on 26 June 2021, the Ribbon of Light has been completed a year later and dedicated 30 June 2022.
The website of the AMP launched in September 2020 includes – besides artwork information:
The List of Names in Washington State of those who’ve died from HIV/AIDS;
The Stories of those who have survived, died, witnessed, and continue to fight against HIV/AIDS documented in dozens of short video interviews;
A History of HIV/AIDS in Washington State in an overview.
The AMP App with Augmented Reality (AR) features the digital-only artworks and storytelling that works in conjunction with physical artworks.
