EnemyGraph Facebook App

EnemyGraph Facebook App

EnemyGraph was a Facebook application that allows users to list "enemies" instead of friends.

Any cultural object from films to games to books to politicians can be "disliked".

The project exposes blind spots in social media design and is a direct critique of the social philosophy of Facebook.

The site gained 50,000 users in one week and was featured on NPR, the cover of CNN, LA Times, BBC, MSNBC, The Wall Street Journal, ABC News, Huffington Post, Mashable, and many internet blogs and discussion boards. It was a top trending topic on Twitter for several days.

Undetweetable

Undetweetable

Undetweetable is a web application that collects deleted tweets.

Anyone can enter any twitter user in the database and it will start tracking their tweets that otherwise would have been deleted.

The project was created as a collaboration with students in my MobileLab Research Studio. It was widely covered by international press.

Undetweetable is a hybrid art, curatorial, and social media experiment. It explores pseudonymity/anonymity, data ownership, authorship, and privacy.

Undetweetable created mirror pages that looked exactly like the legitimate page on twitter, except ours featured only the deleted tweets. It was an alternate universe of twitter. This is wired's Undetweetable page.

Club Silence net mockumentary

Club Silence net mockumentary

Club Silence / Throat Ocean was a fictional online identity & location based mockumentary project that lasted for the full year of 2010.

The project explored net based geofiction and centered on a fictional “Club Silence” that appeared on checkin and review services like Foursquare, Twitter, Facebook, Gowalla, Google Maps, and Yelp (where there were reviews of the non existent club). Most participants were unaware the project was fictional, hence the “mockumentary.” Behind the veil participants would send in fake photos and videos of themselves in the nonexistent location. There were also calls for micro performances which participants would perform and post with hashtags. The most popular were #wordsthathurt and #screaminginthealley. The idea for the EnemyGraph project originated here.
