“People You May Know” is a showing of new works by Miami-based artist, MANO, inspired by his experience with social media. The exhibition features a series of portraits and sculptural installations; “Friend Me” and “Data Spills” that explore the algorithmic reality of making “friends” online and “posts” the question “Are you my friend?”
In his exhibit, it is not the electronics of social media that interest MANO but rather the way that social media has changed the way we communicate and connect. Our profiles are the stories that we create about ourselves illustrated with the photos that we select and post.
In the sculptural installation, “Friend Me” MANO incorporates almost two hundred “profile pages” from his facebook friends. “When I started the piece in 2010, I actually posted a message on facebook asking friends if they wanted to be part of the project. I was amazed, within a matter of days literally hundreds responded YES” said MANO.
