About Attachment Series: "I am currently exploring notions of displacement and identity in sculptural form where work consists of accumulations of ideas and thoughts like glimpses from your self-conscious: a visual representation of a mental list. Fragmented in nature, each work contains a collage of elements and materials which exhibit their own formal logic while at the same time suggests an object, place or use that is no longer or only partially present, remaining only as a vestige. The structures I create are forms that evolve through a slow accumulation of materials and repetitive gestures. These processes result in small objects assembled together to create compositions and serial repetitions, with each stitch contributing to the work--repetition, pattern and form."

Rare Device is a store and gallery that features functional experiments and original ideas in art, design, craft and fabrication. Owners Rena Tom and Lisa Congdon constantly seek out objects that are beautiful, evocative, well constructed and thoughtful. We are pleased to bring to our San Francisco store an ever-growing roster of local, national and international artists and designers for a truly "rare" experience.

Rare Device (raredevice.net) is located at 1845 Market Street between Valencia and Guerrero Streets. Store/gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday noon to 7 pm and Sunday noon to 6 pm.
