[mon-i-ter] is a collection of paintings, sculptures and projected animations by Larson and Mitchell. Inspired by recent NSA surveillance rulings, the artists began tracking their own daily activities by using fitness trackers and productivity apps. They logged the number of steps taken in a day, calories burned, hours spent on the internet, hours slept, etc. The project became a self-imposed exchange of data between the two, resembling a devout practice in observance.
