These bags we carry are filled with promise
Nick Cave and Bob Faust
New York Live Arts

Artists Nick Cave and Bob Faust create a kaleidoscopic mural from one of Cave’s iconic soundsuits constructed entirely of woven bags collected from around the world. These bags we carry are filled with promise is a through-the-looking glass interpretation that the baggage we all walk through life with is anything but weighty. In this manifestation, the bags seem to defy gravity, and rather than weighing us down, actually carry the hopes, dreams and aspirations that fuel us for our choices ahead. From the single source image of Cave’s work, Faust selects and manipulates key details that seem to morph seamlessly into multiple patterns, shape-shifting across the 31 liner feet of lobby wall.
