Amanda talks to Nick Lucking and Tim Ivison about www.spcmkr.com
and their various projects.
SPCMKR facilitates and documents space exchanges, providing a site
through which to organize a gift-economy between users. The
web-based component of the project provides an interface for
locating and contributing resources, arranging for temporarily
inhabiting surplus spaces, and documenting both the exchange and
the activities that occur while in residence. SPCMKR is a way in
which to proliferate small everyday surpluses, allowing for
flexible, friendly opportunities, rather than engaging with
government or institutional power structures. SPCMKR should be
understood not as a residency to which you apply but rather as a
network in which you can contribute and benefit from the exchange
