What is the algorithm Facebook uses to assign the suggested connections for each user? Do they look familiar? Do we already know them? Should we? How and why do we have access to them? These are all questions Andy Herod will be undertaking in his new series Sorry I made it Weird: Portraits of People You May Know. Nationally known as a printmaker and multidisciplinary artist and musician, Herod is unpacking the cultural zeitgeist of social media with this work, attempting to tackle the unseen narratives which tether us through the internet, following a thread through social media, out of the computer screen, and in to our homes.
"Local artist Lydia See is in the process of a progressive installation that will take place over the next several months, including a range of weavings using natural fibers and textiles. Her work is both approachable and relatable, a grounding force of evolving beauty."
