AIR DE SAN FRANCISCO (7284 cc of San Francisco Air)
Medium: Plastic container (broken and later restored)
24.5 x 32.5 x 12cm
The artist received First Art Kit #6 on April 27, 2015 — Dave Rhodes did not send it. Isabel Devos did — The cardboard shipping box had a 32.80 euro stamp on it — The kit was 'full' of elementary art supplies — A headline reads: "San Francisco artists struggle to stay in the city as housing costs skyrocket" — Make some dough / Broodwinning — All the content from the kit was donated to 'Scrap', a local re-use center for materials collected, sorted and made available to teachers, parents, artists, and organizations — The weight of an object explains things sometimes — The artist transforms First Art Kit #6 into an 'empty' vessel, writes a title on it and seals it shut with transparent tape — The artist sends the package to his friend in Buenos Aires, Argentina on May 27, 2015 — What will happen there is an unknown at this point, but could include an attempt to make a San Francisco sourdough starter and bread
This project is part of First Art Kit, an elementary package containing basic art supplies traveling around the world.
