Networked Life is a 365 day art project that originated on my Facebook page and evolved into a large-scale interactive installation and a computer game. It consists of 365 mixed-media images displaying various network systems. Viewers interact with the tiles and work together to build visual connections.  The puzzle-like installation is approximately 5 x 27 feet.

This project originated as a social experiment to explore how information spreads and connects people on Facebook.  I posted an image per day online to collect feedback and test virality of content.  I wanted to select a complex subject that related to Facebook and many other disciplines and found that “network” served as a good departing point for creating an abundance of imagery from cross-discplinary topics.  The images contained graphics, photographs, symbols, and visual interpretations of networks.  This project escalated from a visual and conceptual exploration of networks into a method for communication; people wanted to contribute, offer assistance, share with friends, and ignite a public (visual) dialogue.  The project evolved from making comparisons between networks (i.e. molecular systems, social networks, neural pathways, freeways systems, etc.) into a deep analysis of an important question: what does it mean to be connected?  The project served as a unifying platform to communicate many voices, compile interdisciplinary research, and engage audiences both online and on-site.
