Spark Lab: “Tĕmahh” by Emily Mayo
"Tĕmahh" is a levitating charcoal installation by MFA student Emily Mayo on view in the Spark Lab inside the Fed Galleries @ KCAD through March 21, 2018.
Named after the Hebrew word meaning "wonder," "Tĕmahh" makes manifest spiritual concepts of redemption and faith through the examination of death/destruction with respect to "home." Comprised of small charcoal remnants salvaged from the wreckage site of burnt down homes, the piece exemplifies the smallest vestige left from previously thriving human environments.
