INTERNET ART: networks, performative programming, and web as context

Leave a comment


I became interested in fembots on the internet, particularly on dating sites, and how users of these sites interact with the “bots”. For my final project I created a fake HelloCupid and Tinder profile of a woman named “Jessica” who is gaining the attention of male users of the sites and in some cases interacting with them.

I am still unsure how I would like to present my final project in an artful form. I am considering creating a website that imitates an email account and linking to the messages that the men have sent, or even just providing my login information as my final project so that it exists inside its own account.
