Spontaneous Projects Orchestrating Relevant Exchange

S.P.O.R.E Mobile Gallery is an aging 1998 Ford Windstar minivan converted into a mobile exhibition space with an interior installation gallery and performance/exhibition tent pioneered by Emily Hemeyer.

S.P.O.R.E  is a transient DIY exhibition space, archive and media lab as creative practice. Propelling innovative interactive collaborations between individuals and groups through an evolving cultural exchange.

Event Information
Starting in late August-September, SPORE is traveling throughout the West Coast visiting a slew of public spaces, backyards, small venues, galleries and institutions. As part of the Cultural Ambassadry Interchange we’ll be collecting photographs, stories and art from anyone and everyone who is circumstantially present at our (mostly) spontaneous events. Yes folks, we are stopping in quaint little college towns as well as large bustling cities. If you’d like us to host a visit shoot Emily an email at ghostsihavebeen@gmail.com

Check out http://sporeprojects.blogspot.com for images and updates on S.P.O.R.E’s first West Coast tour.

forging relationships

making connections

this peice acts as a recording of my relationship with my mother as well as a general investigation into the way relationships and connections  of all sorts are created and what efforts are needed to maintain them.

as my grandmother ties the braided ends of my hair to my mother’s the awkward, unsecure connection between the two heads is reflective the status of my relationship with my mother: an un natural connection that needs constant energy and maintainance. my grandmother is a mother to both of us: she is the guiding force that brings us together in the piece and in life.
