Stories for Airports by judy b. (Onze/11) is not about airports. It is an album of brief encounters with the types of people you watch from afar in waiting rooms, on public transportation, or at the mall:
- A bad mother
- A dude looking for love online
- A guy trying to outrun a downpour
- A young woman with a rash on her face that looks like the Virgin Mary of Guadalupe
These are people in the midst of discovering that entire worlds exist beneath the surface of the most inconsequential moments.
With the body in motion the mind is free to wander. Departure, a collection of painting, sculpture, and photography from San Francisco-based emerging artists explores concepts of distance and proximity, the foreign and the familiar. We depart, we arrive, rarely do we consider how this is accomplished or the effect moving our bodies across time, ocean, land has on us. Addressing both the physical and technical aspects of travel, these works look at the emotional experience and how it changes our concept of home.
