Tsosie shows "Baggage Claim"

“Baggage Claim”“Baggage Claim," an animated sculpture, was initially created for “Mining the Unconscious,”

a Santa Fe exhibition responsive to publication of Carl Jung’s Red Book journal. Baggage categories were drawn from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders

and pop psychology. After being selected as one of the City of Albuquerque’s “In-Sight” temporary public art installations, the sculpture was modified to include a carousel mandala, additional bags, a base to elevate the suitcases to eye level and a place for viewers to suggest additional baggage. The sculpture’s ten bags now include: addiction, anger, anxiety, control, depression, expectation, insecurity, jealousy, phobia and rejection. The artist invites you to suggest other baggage. Fill out a bag tag on the base of the sculpture and drop it into the slot on top of the base.
