This project addresses privacy. The closer you look, the less you’ll see.

Personal data that we casually or inadvertently make available can be abundantly specific. This approach upends that course. 

These photographs can be enlarged without losing quality—one size fits all. Their format is dimensionally variable, down-sampled, and just unclear enough to comfortably reveal all.

Riffing on what data analysis calls granularity—i.e. the scale or level of detail present in information or in this case, having distinguishable grain—the photo resolution here is vastly reduced to better appreciate the pixels.
