Who you will find at SPACES   08.18.09

Photo by Vanessa La Valle (of Vanessa La Valle), 2009

Vanessa La Valle. Super lady. Awesome Volunteer. You will find her here at SPACES telling stories (you would never believe unless you have met her in person), making us laugh, talking about art, and working hard and creatively while tackling any task thrown at her. Here is what she has to say about being an artist and finding SPACES:

"I love constructing environments. In the past, I was one of those teenagers with walls full of posters, ticket stubs and magazine clippings that amounted to a museum of my experiences and perceptions. Looking back on photographs of the rooms I have inhabited, I feel as if it is the clearest picture of my mind next to something a psychoanalyst might be able to come up with. In some ways it is like walking into the brain of the inhabitant. I am certain this old habit has influenced the way I create work and the type of places in which I would like to view and live.

Ten years later, after experimenting with constructing soundtracks to visuals and vice versa, I was searching on the internet for alternative approaches the traditional concept of the gallery; something that incorporated physical space into design. SPACELab is just that. Volunteering has been an excellent way of experiencing a segment of Cleveland's art scene and the nature of an alternative exhibition space."

The Nine Eyes of Google Street View (Art Fag City: IMG MGMT)
"The world captured by Google appears to be more truthful and more transparent because of the weight accorded to external reality, the perception of a neutral, unbiased recording, and even the vastness of the project. At the same time, I acknowledge that this way of photographing creates a cultural text like any other, a structured and structuring space whose codes and meaning the artist and the curator of the images can assist in constructing or deciphering."
