Public Space One Awkward Portal Auction

A Voucher. ~A promise is a promise~, Fiber, paper, all materials, No bigger than 14"w x 12"d x 12"h, 2016

Sayuri Sasaki Hemann is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Iowa City, IA. Her project, Mind Travelers' Aquarium, is currently on view at the Fountain Lobby of University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics until November 25. She loves the tactile world and her love for tactility is reflected in the animated film Trolls (November 2016), in which she served as one of visual development artists. She strongly believes cultivating a healthy environment and community is crucial in her art practice, and she is thankful for the existence of this amazingly radical and awesome awkward portal as we call Public Space One.

About the artwork, in her own words:

This is a voucher for a site specific installation of a handmade "portal", or an environment, installed in your own space.  The environment will be created in in response to a visit to the proposed site and all living things that compose the space.  SATISFACTION GUARANTEED!
