"Melanie Clemmons curated this collection in response to the bizarre rhetoric and images of the advertisements and as a result of her interest in tracking cookies. These advertisements are displayed on unrelated webpages as a result of previously searched terms. Melanie Clemmons searched and visited many websites based on Asian and Russian women. Once she had searched and visited these pages, she began to see these ads on unrelated webpages. The curator is interested in taking control away from these tracking cookie companies, and this collection is one of her first attempts to manipulate the system."
