Her most celebrated body of work, “Chat Random”, was first shown at Southard Reid in 2014.
I decided college wasn’t for me, and I was working for a friend of the family. On my computer screen, the Chat Random page was still active and the site had connected me with some girl in the UK. My parents, who were out of town for the week, called to see how things were going and after that I logged onto Twitter while the guys continued gaming.

The guys came over to see what I was looking at and that’s when I told them what had happened that morning. I got it in my head that if I opened the blinds and looked out the living room window, I would see her standing there.
