Halper's series of embroidered drawings explore teenagers in their private world. The world now available to all online. The images in this series began as Facebook photos of teens engaged in typical yet sometimes disturbing explorations of sex, alcohol, drugs and celebration. She then randomly paired them with comments found on various networking sites. It is this duality of the past and present, innocence and loss of innocence, privacy and the demise of privacy that fascinates and drives Halper to continue exploring this subject.
