Selected to appear in the Adobe Museum of Digital Media.
Quote from exhibition curator Thomas Goetz:
"The matrix of friends, followers, and fans on services such as Facebook and Twitter is often described as a “social graph”—a network that takes on a physical, graphical shape as relationships are linked and connections are made.
This social graph, though, is rarely given such beautiful form as in 317, a sublime work by Carolina Andreoli. In this disarmingly simple visual display, Andreoli reflects on the intersections of physical space and emotional space: every colored ring is an individual, with the color representing where Andreoli met them. The placement, from left to right, signifies how emotionally close she feels to each person, with a graph indicating what medium she uses to stay in touch with them: phone, e-mail, or Facebook. Finally, at the bottom there is a timeline that indicates when she lived in or visited various countries.
It is a stark and unexpected statement on how relationships in this digital era are linked inextricably to the way we choose to communicate."
