In I Voted (2020), artist Megan Kozal uses embedded video clips to examine American news consumption, voter education, and voter apathy. Kozal’s minimalistic web page accentuates the short amount of time it takes American voters to feel informed and guides viewers to political sound bites, debate highlights, and talk show round-ups. By leading viewers into this world of fast journalism, Kozal emphasizes the mental space voters commit to constructing opinions and holding political discourse.
Megan Kozal focuses on web art and data art. She is an MFA candidate at the University of Florida. Some places she has shown or presented work include the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, ArtPrize 10, and the Snite Museum of Art.
