From San Jose ICA's website:

"The ICA is honored to present NextNewCA, an exhibition that marks the debut of the brightest new talent on California’s contemporary art scene. The show features a sampling of works by 2012 and 2013 graduates from 11 MFA programs across the state including University of Southern California (USC), San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI), California College of the Arts (CCA), Claremont Graduate University (CGU), Mills College (Mills), California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), San Francisco State University (SFSU), San Jose State University (SJSU), University of California Santa Cruz (UCSC), University of California Berkeley, and Stanford University".

Title 6885 Miles represents the distance from Paros, GR to San Francisco, CA: countless hours, countless sea grass strands, countless knots, with priceless time with friends helping me knotting the seaweed/sea grass. Special thanks to all of them and especially to Helen.
