2009-Work In Progress
a financial portrait generator
MONEY ME addresses personal financial standing and self-image. The collected portraits capture highs and lows of ones fiscal life by processing the subjects portrait and yearly financial numbers through an algorithm. These portraits abstract and emotionalize the fiscal experience, something more than the physical, emotional, or psychological experience that portraiture captures.
In purpose, MONEY ME enables the subjects fiscal-self reflection through a coded-memoir/ conceptual-currency proxy/ self portrait. These images are processed once a year and are intended to be preserved in relation to each other in a meditative space.
This project was developed in 2009 and is an ongoing/lifelong project conducted by the artist with her participants.
