Hold These Truths

Jennifer Dalton

Conceptual artist Jennifer Dalton compiles and presents a variety of data, from rigid market statistics to esoteric measurements of emotion and morality. In her installation Reckoning (2012), originally commissioned for the NLE exhibition How Much Do I Owe You?, Dalton engages with the later. Viewers are asked to fill out a survey that reflects on their personal relationship to surplus and debt, as it relates to a set of artist-designated demographics and contexts. Upon filling out the survey, respondents are rewarded with buttons that label them as “giver” or “receiver.” The installation is accompanied by two hand-drawn graphics, created from the data collected during How Much Do I Owe You?, Following the close of Bring in the Reality, Dalton will conduct another round of data analysis and create new accompanying visual graphics.
