A series of recent projects ask viewers and participants to re-see - and in some sense to un-see - the objects around them. Just what is it that creates value? Objection to the status quo, welcome here.
1. Give and Get (2011-ongoing)
With Lin Charlston in Ludlow, UK, Emily runs Give and Get, an ongoing exchange of objects taking place both in the US and the UK, as well as between the US and UK.
2. Junk Swap (2012-ongoing)
Junk Swap is also a collaboration with Charlston, and open to anyone to join. Take a walk, collect detritus, map your walk and join in the project.
3. Added Value (2014)
Two recent Wilmington, Delaware exhibitions show work from the Added Value series, which rescues the discarded and repositions it.
