Data/Date (NSA)

“Data/Date” is part of a body of works entitled “NSA (No Strings Attached)”, which deals with the immigrant experience in the U.S. and the relationship they establish with a different culture. For this project, I have contacted queer immigrants through social media and requested an interview about their views on the U.S., technology, surveillance and intimacy in the digital age. My interest in wordplay is manifest in the neon piece, which flickers between the words “date” and “data” in a wry meditation on intimacy in the age of surveillance.
