Inspired by the social connectivity of the Street Art movement, social media, the work of photographer Walker Evans and a desire to free art from its function as commodity, street artist Amy Young (seemetellme) has conceptualized a series of works nestled on the art of giving and sharing. Since June 2010, Young has placed hundreds of tiny seemetellme street art works in New York, London and Paris. Using low-art materials and a strict time limit (an important part of her process); Young creates each piece in less than five minutes. Anonymity is not part of her working concept as Young identifies herself by putting her website address or QR code on each piece before she places it in public view. The complete record of these works and the comments of those who collect them are noted at seemetellme.blogspot.com.

Viewers of the exhibition are requested to take two of the works, one for their collection and one to pass on to another collector. They will register their acquisition on the tag replacing each work and comment at seemetellme.blogspot.com about the new addition to their collection.
