Playa Vista Fire Station #67


A public art commission at Fire Station#67 in Playa Vista/ Los Angeles. Inscriptions extend outward from the entrance lobby, onto a metaphoric, continuing on the sidewalk all the way from the entrance to the curb.

These inscriptions—collected during outreach—juxtapose the public and private identities of fire fighters and their daily lives of operations, routines and the dilemmas, fires and disasters that call them into action. Fire fighters are also placed within a wider spectrum of workers, finding their place within the local community. Dimensions: 10’W x 9’H x 45’D.
