Match/Enemy (Installation Views)
Match/Enemy consists of over 200 watercolor “portraits” of men that were matched to the artist's own profile by the online dating app OkCupid. Displayed on a grid, the portraits incorporate the percentage of Match and Enemy. Those percentages are calculated by an algorithm when users answer questions within the app. Thus, Match/Enemy is a visual summary of the artists’ personal experience with the app.
Notes: These works on paper are 9 x 12”, the image being approximately 7 x 8”. They are 4 times the size the original pictures are displayed on the artist’s iPhone screen, where most of her “shopping” research occurred.
