Pushing conversations about consent beyond the safety of the screen

What is this?

What happens when you reduce a social media profile to only targeted negative aspects? This is a collection of trading cards made from the OkCupid dating profiles of men who have made misogynistic statements.

How?

We use data mining techniques to call out men for creating rape culture via their online selves so that we may challenge that culture as people rather than statistics.

privacy?

We appropriate data that has been shared publicly but is buried under layers of social networking noise to disrupt regressive cultural norms--data that is technologically but not culturally vulnerable.

why?

Conversations about consent do not always happen at the appropriate time. This project pushes those conversations beyond the safety of the screen.
