an interactive installation, displayed on a 56” high-resolution touch screen, which chronicles the online profiles of people from a variety of online dating sites every few hours.

the visualization consists of an interactive sky, whose weather (e.g. sunny, cloudy, rainy, snowy) can be controlled by the viewer. through the sky float 100s of blue (male) & pink (female) balloons, each representing a single dating profile. the brighter balloons are younger people; the darker balloons older. the piece has 5 formal movements, focusing on sentences that start with “I am” or "I am looking for”, on opening or closing lines, or sorting the most popular turn-ons, first dates, desires, self-descriptions & interests.

currently on display for the Design and the Elastic Mind exhibition at MoMA.
