california artist michele pred creates three dimensional sculpture work out of confiscated items she has collected over the last five years from airport security checkpoints at the san francisco international airport. she collected these items to express the disruption we have felt in our everyday lives since the 9/11 attacks in a visual way. the works are open to interpretation of course, and to michele they represent the “arbitrary intrusion of disorder and all that is now lost and unrecoverable.”
what do they symbolize to you?
michele will be exhibiting her work in a solo chow at the john michael kohler arts center from june 15th – october 12th, 2008. if you can’t get there in person you can see her most excellent collection on her website.
