The Public Profile Project is an ongoing exploration of the invisible subcultures, identities, and lifestyles thriving solely on the Internet. Each individual work is a collection of an unseen mass, removed from the screen and made tangible. Though each installation could stand alone, Public Profile is united as a whole through issues of exploitation, mimicry, and feminism.
After sifting through thousands of Facebook profiles, Tumblr blogs, and YouTube Channels, what began as an exercise in curiosity has now become a collection of a certain generation who appear to expose themselves at any cost. Their intention is unclear, but their volume en masse becomes a disturbing commentary on female identity and self-exploitation within social media and contemporary society. As with every movement a generation is consumed by, we have no clear picture of the ramifications. We cannot understand, we cannot look away, and we are not meant to.
