In 2012, I was asked to participate in Zeitgeist 3, an ongoing exhibition series that examined the current cultural and political climate of the U.S. In this third installment, the question we were posed was about information and how how it affected us.


For Too Much Information?, I decided to look at the role of data collection in our lives. As a graphic designer and fundraiser, I was intimately aware of how data (in the form of demographics) was collected and used to create profiles of most-likely consumers and donors. Often-times, these aggregated profiles created an eerily accurate portrait of a group of individuals; other times not so much.


I Hardly Knew You was my response to the aggregation of data used to create profiles of people, culled from internet interactions, debit card transactions and the like. In my work, I created layered images of people organized by demographic information (age, income, ethnicity) to create a new composite image. These new images often took on an interesting abstract quality, with line, shape and texture considerations.
