BEST FRIENDS

The project was based on data I gathered by taking a lengthy survey about my Facebook® "friends." I asked myself questions ranging from personal (do I know this person's phone number?) to generic (can I recognize this person by their name alone?) and assigned each of my cyber-friends a score ranging from 1-25 (those that scored less than 1 were de-friended). Each score was then plotted on a color spectrum. I then made a wax bust of myself for each person in the color that corresponded to their score. The result shows how close I am to my Facebook® "friends," purple being those of my "friends" that I actually know intimately and interact with in person.
