Attention Prospect fans and sci-fi fans alike! If you're a Seattle resident (or live nearby) you're definitely going to want to make the trip to the Glass Box Gallery from December 6 thru January to take in a very cool science fiction themed exhibit called "Artifacts from the Multiverse" curated by Chris Caldwell and Zeek Earl, directors of the film.

To kick off excitement for the show, thrilled to bring QE readers a small glimpse at some of the art and objects that will be on display, including many of the meticulously, hand crafted props and costumes created for the movie Prospect.

About the Exhibit:
The showcase debuts a diverse selection of our most spectacular pieces curated from the eight simulus dimensions. Opened by Taka several decades ago, the original eight portals marked Earth Prime’s first access to the multiverse.

The featured artifacts were selected to represent a broad spectrum of cultures and technologies our explorers encountered over their expeditions to date, offering a once-in-a-lifetime glimpse at rare objects that span the once impenetrable barriers of spacetime.

Visitors may also want to be aware that all the non-Prospect stuff is for sale if you're looking to decorate your home with eccentric sci-fi inspired artifacts.

Check out some artifacts from the show below and visit Glass Box for more details.

What started as a desire to put some of the props and costumes on display, turned into a much larger sci fi exhibition for Zeek Earl and Chris Caldwell.

Restless with post-Prospect creative energy the directors and the crew have setup a fake museum complete with wall tags and an audio guide where people can experience this series of mini-stories. The show is called Artifacts from the Multiverse.

This is King Mandtii - a half-crab, half-man created for a mini kaiju fighting league.

After the demeaning sport was shutdown the King led a long career in film and television becoming a minor celebrity. In his later years he was known as much for his humanitarian work as his memorable performances.

Even in the future, teens gotta listen to tunes! Prospect viewers will recognize Cee's distinct retro futuristic headphones featured in the beginning of the film.

This is the Flowtrack Machine. It's a functional mashup of a zen garden and a pinball table.

There's no end point - as you master it, it becomes more and more fluid and sort sucks you into a mediative trance. We built this whole fictional story around it - but the effect actually kind of works. It's addicting.

Set designers created unique furniture. The in-universe story is that it was designed by a futurist who mysteriously disappeared.

Through the exhibit audio guide (bring headphones to the show, people!) and additional notebooks, sketches, and props you navigate her story which is a small murder mystery.

The chair is actually a speaker you can sit inside of, with different atmospheric sounds piped in. (You may recognize some of the leftover foam from the Cee pod).

Take a look at the video below to get a closer look at the upcoming Artifacts from the Multiverse exhibit at the Glass Box Gallery.
