    Elaine W. Ho, (Bei­jing) works be­tween the realms of time-based art, urban prac­tice and de­sign, using mul­ti­ple vo­cab­u­lar­ies to ask ques­tions about how users and ob­jects in­ter­twine with the mi­crop­ol­i­tics of every­day life. Often work­ing col­lab­o­ra­tively, her videos, in­stal­la­tions and other in­ter­ven­tions focus on al­ter-pos­si­bil­i­ties of an in­ti­mate, net­worked pro­duc­tion. One of her cur­rent en­deav­ours is Home­Shop, a store­front space turned home base for in­ter­ac­tions with the local com­mu­nity and the sur­round­ing pub­lic space. Via the or­gan­i­sa­tion of col­lab­o­ra­tive events and work­shops, re­search and field record­ings, Home­Shop and its in­de­pen­dent jour­nal pub­li­ca­tion WEAR seek to de­velop an open plat­form that ex­am­ines re­la­tion­al­ity as a tool tied to but out­side of other eco­nomic modes of pro­duc­tion. Elaine is also a fre­quent con­trib­u­tor at iwishicoulddescribeittoyoubetter.net
