Participants drew images on credit card blanks that refer to themselves in a personal way. A sticker representing a credit card chip was affixed to each, and the participants imparted their energy into the chip. During this small ritual, the artist had conversations with each participant (over 125 total) about online privacy, data security and internet exploitation.

The catalyst for conversation in this work are two cakes and the complete US Supreme Court brief pertaining to the Masterpiece Bakery vs the State of Colorado discrimination lawsuit.
