Chakaia Booker: Artist Talk

Green Art     Recycling     Artistic Exploration     Race

Retreads     Public Art Work     Artistic Voice

Communication     Sculpting Self     Experimentation

Wearable Pieces     Automobile Tires

"A penchant for scavenged rubber, Chakaia Booker began a career assembling the strips and shreds of discarded Goodyears and Firestones into intricate, elaborate, widely acclaimed sculpture. Her work has a fully organic presence. For a NASA-commissioned memorial project, she disassembled a tire once used by the ill-fated space shuttle Columbia. Booker's work communicates her need to utilize her skills as a means of experimentation and exploration."
