Artist Christopher Locke creates these ingenious sculptures using scissors confiscated by the TSA at airport security checkpoints. Although the TSA website says scissors with blades less than four inches are allowed on airplanes, the individual officers conducting the screening have the authority to confiscate anything they think could be used as a weapon. As a result, hundreds of pairs of scissors are confiscated daily at American airports. Christopher works by disassembling the scissors, bending and welding them together to create these unique metal sculptures.
