SPD West: Unsung Heroes 4 "The Journey Is a Medium In Itself."

SPD West: Unsung Heroes 4 Rebeca Mendez is a designer and artist who works in film, video, photography and installations, focusing on her travels to the unfamiliar and extreme where she explores the way cultures express themselves through the style of nature they produce, be it Iceland, Patagonia, Svalbard archipelago in the high arctic, or the Sahara. Just one of her recent projects (and subject of her TEDx talk), "Circumpolar," would be an impressive effort for any artist; for Rebeca, it's just one of many art and design projects she works on simultaneously (see her artwork for the "Alphabet, Reconsidered" project). Join us Thursday night at Smashbox West Hollywood to meet this electrifying artist and her pick for one of the West Coast's Unsung Heroes. All info after the jump...
