I make small, anonymous and slightly magical packages which I leave - one critic called it gifting - across the world; over 4,000 in the USA, UK, France, Cuba, Cambodia, Turkey, Germany, Spain, and Australia. My belief is a return to what I feel has been lost in art; surprise, chance, enchantment and a desire to replace art as commodity through interactivity and community. 

If you found one of my works I would love to hear all about it email metweet or instagram

Show at R.Jampol Project(s), July 31-August 31, 2014



I am showing at R. Jampol Projects at 191 Henry Street in Manhattan from July 31 through August 31. The show is titled PESTS, Shawabits and Mint Box Collages.

The gallery is open Thursday through Sunday from 12-6 and the opening is Thursday, July 31 from 6-8 pm

Press Release –

Inspired by the Street Art movement, immediate interactivity of social media and a desire to free art from its function as commodity,See Me Tell Me, makes small, anonymous, slightly magical packages which she leaves – one critic called it gifting – across the world. Over 4,000 have been released in the US, UK, France, Cuba, Cambodia, Turkey, Germany, Spain, and Australia since June 2010. Using low-art materials she creates series dealing with historic and contemporary art, artists and styles, fashion, vanity, play, protest, and travel. After developing a concept she manufactures the works within a limited time period and then places the works in public areas – the street and the subway – for viewers to take away and add to their collections.

The website address and QR code are placed on each piece to elicit viewer responses which have ranged from a brief, “I found one,” to remarkable lengthy messages on how the works have affected the collector’s lives. 

This exhibition will consist of a selection of her recent works from the Shawabits and Pest series, a collection of daily collages and plaques from her Monarch and One Inch Missive series, a group of cyanotype prints, mint box assemblages with small lights, and an assortment of her other See Me Tell Me projects.

Sixty-third series: st. richard the patron saint of stray cats, ed. 100 
My husband and I said farewell to one of our cats last month. 14 years ago, a young, weary, ill, battered, yet feisty little cat ordered us to adopt her. We will miss her clarion call, her incredibly mink-soft gray fur, her tip of the tailflip, and her imperious attitude. So many street cats need folks like us, actually husbands like mine, to care for and adopt them. So, I cast a small votive St. Francis figure I found, added a bit of paint and some thread, string, trinkets, bells, beads, etc. They will be placed anywhere some cats are waiting to be cared for.

Missing Monuments/ Eulogiai series: Banksy/Red Hook
This ongoing series will point to and explore relationships between older pilgrimages and fetish objects now conducted under the name of tourism. We are all familiar with the medieval pilgrimages of the devout but the history of fetishistic eulogiai is far vaster. These mementos were manufactured and sold at holy sites in ancient times to be left in tribute, to request blessings and rejuvenation, and as venerated keepsakes. New York City is full of pilgrimage sites; the Statue of Liberty for the immigrant, Ground Zero for the patriotic, Wall Street for the moneyed. But I intend to highlight and rediscover similar sites devoted to the name of ART by creating tributes which will guide devotees to the locations and provide a token to document the missing work and the travels of the art tourist. 

These heart eulogiai will be placed at the site of the removed 2013 Banksy mural periodically to mark its demise and the selfishness of those who hacked it out of the wall.

Will-O-The-Wisp Magic Numbers a 2013 AiOP Project
200 tiny lights glowing in red, green, blue, orange or yellow made from LEDs, sparkly beads, liquid plastic, magnets and a little plastic box are being placed along 14th Street from Union Square to 8th Avenue nighty in groups of 20 to be gathered. These little lights with their numbers on the front represent that delusive or misleading hope that somehow with the evoking of a magic number all our dreams will come true.

(Hey, if you want to reserve the light in your Wisp just open the box and un-tape it. Cool huh? If your battery runs out don't just throw it away. Recycle. AND, if you want to light your number back up Bed Bath and Beyond sells the batteries.)
