KRISTIN McIVER: Data Portraits

KRISTIN McIVER: Data Portraits
March 27 - May 1, 2015

For "Data Portraits," Kristin McIver translates an individual’s ‘Faceprint’ data--a string of code used by social media hubs like Facebook to identify faces from online photographs--into a colorful, formalist aesthetic that leans toward geometric abstraction. McIver addresses the selfie phenomena and social media’s manipulation of technology to map and mine identities through these vibrant and unique pixel-like portraits. 

Also on view: 
works by Karen Lofgren

Elements from Karen Lofgren's recent "Ritual Landscape" exhibition are on view in the back room of royale projects through April 26. View Slideshow HERE
