Persecuting US
2012. Mixed media and audio installation, 2000 hours long track.

This artwork scored one million Americans by their political affiliation on Twitter and exposed them to online persecution in the aftermath of the 2012 U.S. presidential election. The data was harvested from and recontextualized on the website, which offers a platform for engaging people in surveying and persecuting each other in the form of a info-civil-war of political polarization. The art installation evokes the activity of wiretapping the Internet to monitor political opinions and profile voters. Through an audio installation the audience can listen to a track (over fifty days long) of computer voices reading the dataset of statements of Americans sorted by their political views.
