Asymmetric Love is about duality of function. It is a reflection of our current digital infrastructure, as the knowledge and ability to monitor others is defining the hieratic of power. Asymmetric Love was intended to mimic an iconic baroque chandelier. It attempts to be perceived as something familiar in memory by the audience so that the details of the CCTV cameras recording them is overlooked. In that regard the surveillance is not perceived as a direct threat, which becomes the biggest threat of all.

The piece was commissioned by Museumsquartier Vienna for the FACELESS exhibition. Asymmetric Love Number 2 is in the collection of Robert D. Bielecki, New York, Asymmetric Love Number 1 is in a privately held corporate collection in London.
