Press Coverage was an important part of the Fifty Dates of Grey project.  I wanted to hijack mainstream media sources to share a contemporary artwork with masses of people, and to see whether this was possible without sacrificing the level of content in my work.  Press was also a continuation of my exploration of versions of the self and the agency they provide.  In addition to the versions presented on my Tinder profile, on a date, and performed on social media, a new version is generated according to the political slant of each media source.
