Mount Analogue’s Art Series began in Summer 2016 with the desire to connect the literary and visual art communities in Seattle. Originally called the ‘Summer Art Series’, Mount Analogue's Art Series curates and organizes multidisciplinary and immersive art shows and readings around the greater Seattle area.
In August 2017, the Art Series will move into its permanent gallery home inside of Mount Analogue’s brick-and-mortar art/book shop.
Mount Analogue and The Factory are excited to present BLOW UP, a group show of inflatable art works featuring Amanda James Parker, Peter Dodds, Seattle Design Nerds, and Guy Merrill. Each artist has created a work that inflates in some way, ranging from a large-scale tunnel installation to a soundscape to a gang of handmade balloons.
“The door to the invisible must be made visible…” is a phrase taken from René Daumal’s 1952 novel Mount Analogue. This novel records the first-ever use of the word peradam: something which reveals itself only to those who seek it.
As an exhibition, The Door to the Invisible Must Be Made Visible is interested in exploring the subjectivity of experience, mystic visions, time, and the connection between technology and reality.
The Door to the Invisible Must Be Made Visible was the final show in the 2016 Summer Art Series, hosted by Mount Analogue and Megan Harmon Studio and was a part of the Black Box 3.0 Festival and the October Georgetown Art Attack.

A show comprised of photo & video projections and light installations, formed by a number of different technologies including: anyone’s smart phones, overhead projection, digital projection, and a number of collaborative, hand-made Mystery Machines.
Mount Analogue created an environment in which everything was both a projection and a surface to be projected on, covering the gallery space in various recycled, reflective materials. Participation was the installation itself, with everyone using their smart devices to directly project their photos, videos, and gifs with the Mystery Machines on to myriad textures and colors and movements throughout the show.
