Letterpress Sculpture Prints FREEDOM

Over on CRAFT, Katie Wilson has some exclusive comments from Oakland artist Shawn HibmaCronan, whose mechanical sculpture The Press is on display at Terminal 2 of the San Francisco International Airport until 2021. I’m guessing the lawyers put a rope around it when they saw those big potentially-finger-crushing gears, but Shawn talks about how important it was, to him, to design the mechanism to be operable by a single person. So it’d be cool if they actually let people operate it. [Thanks, Katie!]
