Radiate Apartments Unveils Matt Babcock's "Curious?"

July 15, 2021

Right at home in front of the leasing office at Radiate Apartments in Redmond, WA, “Curious?” is a powder-coated aluminum sculpture of a life-size grizzly bear prying up the sidewalk to see what lies beneath. It represents the curiosity in us all, according to artist Matt Babcock, and is an encouragement to investigate your surroundings.

But it’s more than just a piece of art. “Curious?” invites newcomers and longtime residents alike to meet their neighbors, engage with their community, and experience the beauty of the city of Redmond. It’s a message that is core to Radiate’s values as a community.

How “Curious?” Was Made

“Curious?” is meant to connect Radiate Apartments to the Bear Creek Trail in an obvious yet playful manner. Four aerial “brushstrokes” made of folded metal plates combine to represent the form, movement, and emotional state of the bear.

Babcock constructed the bear out of heavy gauge aluminum. It was then powder coated in the his studio and transported to the site for installation. As such, it is extremely durable and will weather the elements with ease. Crafted with great care and attention to detail, the impressive metalwork took more than 200 hours to create and install.
