Hi.

My name is Emily Spivack.

I am the author of Worn in New York, which is a follow-up to my New York Times best seller Worn Stories and wornstories.com, collections of stories about clothing and memory.
I created An archive of everything worn to MoMA from November 1, 2017, to January 28, 2018 as MoMA’s artist-in-residence.
I write a column for T: The New York Times Style Magazine called "The Story of a Thing."
I made a t-shirt shack for President Obama called Medium White Tee that was an installation of the Honolulu Museum of Art.
I collected stories for a project called Sentimental Value. Sometimes I show that work and sell zines.
I am working on turning a Leonardo da Vinci sketch for a sequin-making machine into a working sculpture.
I scraped WikiHow for a website I made called How to Dress Like.
I give talks about archives, objects, clothing, memory, and the internet.
I gathered stories on Craigslist about clothing mishaps for Vestoj.
I created the Smithsonian's clothing history blog, Threaded.
I have taught.
I analyzed scented t-shirts.
I made something for DIS.
I founded Shop Well with You, was editor-in-chief of PopTech, and produced and co-curated global salons for SustainAbility.
