Sacramento Airport Installation

This installation greets travelers at the baggage claim area at the Sacramento Airport. It is the best! They are real suitcases, piled to the ceiling! At this point, many of the suitcases are antiques. This piece sure was a lovely thing to behold when I landed in Sacremento after many hours on a plane!
With a little research, I found out the piece was created in 1998 by Brian Goggin. It is called "Sampson" and includes 700 pieces of luggage!! Cool stuff!

That is just so cool. Glad you got to see it at the airport. After your KVITL project I am sure that you had a greater appreciation of this installation than most travelers that just pass by in a hurry to get to their distination.
