KQED ARTS (SAN FRANCISCO) -- Last but not least, Nathan Byrne’s “I Wish I Knew for True: 12 Works by Nathan Byrne” occupies the Environmental Learning Center, work all the more impressive given the fact that it was made not in a cavernous studio like Lyle or Hott’s, but in a standard shipping container — long and low-ceilinged and windowless. Byrne, who graduates from San Francisco State University this month, presents a series of individual works that arrange familiar objects in unlikely juxtaposition.
