Fake snacks and jack-o’-lanterns: Josh Faught takes us to the Neptune Society Columbarium

Artist Josh Faught reflects on his SFMOMA commission, a series of woven sculptures that respond to the architecture and history of the Neptune Society Columbarium in San Francisco, a nondenominational repository for cremation urns. He describes the idiosyncrasies of the space and the personalized memorials housed there, which demonstrate a balance between gravity and levity that is mirrored in his sculptures.
