Statement

This piece: 69/89 dissected the app Tinder and rearranged it to depict the average Toronto female user’s experience. After researching the average amount of time spent on Tinder, I spent one session of sixty minutes straight on the app. During this time; I swiped left (no), or right (yes) to the different profiles that appear, and screenshot the first picture that appeared on their profile. From here the likes were painted green; hiding their most favourable features. While the dislikes were painted red, hiding their least attractive. Thus, putting the female in the position of power, where the male has historically stood when choosing their mate.
