About Us

Susanne Osborn

I’ve recently completed my MFA at the University of Washington. During my studies I continued to delve into topics that contained historical, political and personal issues around memory and identity. I like to create objects that often have a deeper secondary meaning which might not be noted on first glance. Found Objects was made in 2003 as my response to the direction America took after 9/11. It was designed to challenge how Americans viewed themselves in a time of intense propaganda, fear and blind patriotism. At the time it was highly controversial, but its relevance has stood the test of time.
